Rachel King (Australia) Residence: April 2017
Rachel King is a Melbourne (Australia) based emerging artist whose work stems from a deep fascination with colour, composition and form. Particularly through painting she examines the intuitive decision and indecision that is part of the creative process in the studio. She is fascinated by the creation of a language and internal logic that occurs in the stages between a blank canvas and a finished painting.
Graduating with a degree in BA Fine Art from the Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology in 2015 Rachel is now undertaking a Masters in Arts Management while continuing to exhibit locally and internationally.
During her time at Studio Kura Rachel will create a body of work that draws upon the surrounding architecture and rural landscape. She is interested to see how a concentrated duration of time within the studio will influence the way in which she paints.
