Artist Statement

IconCaretDown

Inspired by scientific drawings of plants and vegetables in history, the artist has used a similar ivory background with a botanical art style to illustrate onions. An onion fairy peeks out through the layers while another is deep asleep. This work is based on the idea of one’s personality being similar to the layers of an onion. The self one shows to the public being the outer layers and the private self being the core.

Artist Profile

Born: 1992

Hometown: Singapore

Based in: Singapore

Narrative-driven, Rachel’s works revolve around themes of childhood such as daydreaming, memories, isolation, reflection and growth. Her watercolour style creates a dreamy and quiet atmosphere, like looking through a fog or a hazed memory of a dream. Symbols of comfort such as umbrellas, fluffy clouds and blankets are often woven into her stories, while nostalgic memories are encased within the painting’s inhabitants that hover between the past and present. Her works are bittersweet, slightly child-like and somewhat hopeful.

Rachel is a Singaporean artist who holds a degree in Visual Arts (New Zealand) and a degree in Psychology and Sociology (New York). Rachel has taught painting workshops in Singapore and overseas, ranging from private workshops to large painting demonstrations for hundreds of art enthusiasts. Her work has been shown regularly in solo and group exhibitions at art galleries in New Zealand, and shortlisted for prestigious NZ national art awards. In 2015 and 2017 she was the winner of the City college art award, held by Gallery De Novo in NZ. Her work has been featured in University magazines and she has sold work to art collectors in Israel, China, Belgium, Hong Kong and Germany.
