Rachael Dewhirst

 Land of The Roaring Forties

Rachael Dewhirst takes inspiration from exploring the wilder New Zealand Landscapes. The response to her subject is painterly, using the canvas as an area for investigation into paint practice. Her intention is to rely the feeling of exhilaration and the energy felt in nature through the application of paint. Her works sit somewhere between abstraction and representation. Just as the application of paint to the canvas demonstrates a joy and pleasure in the act of painting, the subjects of Dewhirst’s work are equally characterized by their optimism.

It’s different now, but it wasn’t then.

 My works explore the way time effects events in our lives, by looking back with a contemporary perspective. Centered around an event of great loss, the content depicts an emotional response to both before and during a personal grief. The paintings themselves act as symbols for the process of acceptance, being a

by-product of a necessary path to overcome the loss of a loved one.
