Drawing

Rebecca Scheckman is a New York based multi-media trained artist whose perspective represents an exploration of systemic solutions that address inequity. With a career already established in video journalism and social justice, Rebecca began to pursue sci-fi storytelling and drawing as an exploration of human potential outside of the current economic system. She looks at what drives humans to change. What are the conditions that lead to cultural revolutions? What will humans need to face now in order to be ready for that change? Each drawing serves as a meditation on what can be. The work is created from a need to imagine what a loving, empathetic and compassionate world looks like and how to build a future with that in mind.
