Primarily working in ceramic sculpture, Becky Tucker’s work could be described as anachronistic artefacts, referencing diverse sources including ancient sculpture, architecture, medieval paintings, costume and armour.

The mutable nature of symbols plays a strong role in her work. Tucker is interested in images and artefacts that have held different meanings across different cultures and eras, enhancing an object’s timelessness and slipperiness. Tucker creates works that commonly reference the human or animal body with sculptures often blurring the line between animate and inanimate.

Tucker’s research is deeply rooted in the past, but also explores coupling ancient and futuristic aesthetics. She is particularly interested in understanding the discourse surrounding the translation of artefacts, cultural adaptation and intersection.
