Rebecca Merkley-Omeje is a multimedia artist focused on metal, fiber, and color. She uses found, fabricated, and recycled materials to create abstract and semi-abstract compositions. These juxtapositions of materials are both reactions against and meditations on dualities: softness vs. hardness; creation vs. decay; reverence for scientific knowledge vs. a search for spiritual wholeness; deep love for the natural world vs. obsession with technology and industry. Merkley-Omeje graduated with an MFA in sculpture and painting from Idaho State University in 2018.
