jdc Fine Art is pleased to present an ongoing series by Rebecca Webb.  Sutures:  Stories with Seams presents just that- a body of fragments.  Webb joins seemingly unrelated frames together in a diptych format where personal and anonymous meet.  Friends, family, and the self are the subject of one frame; its compliment is a forsaken or abandoned scene- an empty lot of chairs, a dilapidated barn, a pool, a mobile home.  Tension emerges from our desire to unify the images.

The need to connect, to write, to invent narrative for the disjointed fragments is strong; we are locked in engagement.  While for Webb the work is extremely personal it functions on broader levels, as the specific becomes the general.  The intensity of the personal narrative comes through in feelings of fear and joy; disappointment and hope; longing, desire, and attainment.  We feel this work, it affects us in a strange and unsettling way.  Rather than turn from the scenes we find ourselves grasping for pieces, and longing to sew back together that which is torn.
