“Over the span of her career, self-taught contemporary painter Rachael Edwards has developed a dark palleted method of connecting people…
by breaking the rules.” - from the artist
Evident by the vast spectrum of her personal influences Caravaggio, Rembrandt, Vermeer, Banksy, and David Bowie, is the desire to constantly expand the inclusion of her audience by offering a visual experience full of juxtaposing styles crossing the unwritten borders of technique.
A widely varied body of work that began in acrylics and developed in homage to the power of renaissance masters eventually tossed aside the thought of limitations. Childlike paper monsters became a street art influenced representation of a forgotten people softly embedded in figurative paintings.
Spray paint became a respectful rebel belonging wherever you find it. Cardboard became a contemplative power coupling used to encourage the flow of understanding each other.
Winner of the Foundation Prize Fellowship Award in Painting from Peripheral Vision Arts (2016), Edwards's refusal to accept boundaries encourages the underlying concern of her work to transfer consistently thru every statement, series and concept... a concern for the treatment of life, and the importance of cherishing it.
