Her work is situated very much on the boundaries of perception, having a fugitive presence that is almost an absence, in which the viewer is partially reflected, setting up a provocative and shifting relationship between the artist , the work, its meaning, and the viewer. Rebecca Beardmore's work plays on the limitations of visual experience, setting up a subtle interplay between image, text, and material surface where each layer is presented with such fragility that they cannot be collectively discerned.
In 2010, Rebecca Beardmore was the winner of the Fremantle Arts Centre Print Award.
