About Rachel Newton

About the artwork

Rachel works in a variety of media, mainly acrylics, producing atmospheric and deceptively understated pieces often on a large scale. Our fossilised past illuminates potential The tendency as human beings to want to bury aspects of our past in favour of an unsullied future and a pain-free present ignores the possibility that the past can inform. Indeed there is an occasional dare to hope that the suppressed fossils of our past may reemerge from the inertia, ’gilded’ with the courage to harvest those parts that infuse us with the confidence to live free. Some of the ignored opportunities to nourish potential fall away and are subsumed within our deeper, darker layers. Thickened gesso and gold leaf create the sculptural elements that emerge from a background of dull gesso and diluted acrylic paint. The black, bottom third layer is highly sanded and gently varnished to create depth. Painted on an appropriately primed museum standard wooden floating painting panel. A poplar plywood surface, it has been sustainably sourced (PEFC and FSC certified) and an aluminium subframe that will not react to changes in humidity or temperature creating a warp-free panel with lasting longevity.
