Acrylic and oil paintings (figurative and abstract), limited edition prints, sculpture, mixed media.
Rachel finished her MA in Fine Art at Chichester University in 2021, and earlier this year set up a pop up art gallery called Morisot in Chichester. My passions are creativity and colour. I pursue them through every medium I can - painting, mosaic, textiles, sculpture, ceramics, film, stained glass, and performance art. Painting is my most immediate outlet for this expression: my thick, instinctively placed brushstrokes play with form and colour. I revel in clashing colours to excite the eye, yet later I introduce unity by balancing colours out around the canvas or object. Formal principles, such as the Golden Ratio, and colour theory, often inform my composition. My influences: the Impressionists, Italian Renaissance painting. I also make films, focusing on social issues and human sensibilities.
