Rachel’s intention as an artist is to tell stories through layers and texture that can be felt. She creates emotionally charged movement by studying the space between the structured and the unpredictable.

In Sebastopol was inspired by a visit to see her eldest sister in California. She fell in love with the cool mornings, hot afternoons and windy evenings. She used writing excerpts from her personal journal and from some of her favourite books, including Pride & Prejudice and Little Women.

Each story is a reflection of colour and environment, both external and internal.

In Sebastopol will be on view at the Alternator from January 11 to February 2, 2019. An opening reception will be held on January 11 from 6-8pm.
