Rachel King 'You think the Stars are Talking to You'
122cm x 91.5cm Original Oil on cotton
Rachel King lives and works on Gulidjan and Gadubanud Country (Barwon Downs, Australia) and is deeply fascinated with colour, composition and form. Particularly through oil painting, she examines the intuitive decision and indecision that is part of the creative process. There is a creation of a language and internal logic that occurs in the stages between a blank canvas and a finished painting that she finds timelessly fascinating.
Rachel challenges the distance between landscape and abstraction. Framed are the internal and external influences that drive the decisions made while painting, concreting them to the time and place that they were created. Born from real places, objects and natural forms these works aim to sit on the edge of representation and recognition.
