Rachael Addis: Art All Dayer exhibition

Artist Statement:

Rachael is a contemporary painter based at Rogue Artists’ studios in Manchester. Her practice is fundamentally a mark making process in which she creates abstract landscapes by applying a multitude of painted layers and patterns to the surface of canvas and paper.

Her formative years, spent between the Lake District and Asia had an important inspiration on the process, colours and aesthetic of her work.  

Throughout this time, Zen Buddhism imprinted itself as an influence on her distinctive mark making process. Also heavily influenced by 1950’s abstract expressionism painters, the philosophies from these cultures and movements began to mould and shape her style and attitude to the painted surface. 

Rachael’s current paintings seek to establish a contemplative and meditative aspect both for the viewer and for herself. She uses unconventional processes to create her paintings, abandoning paintbrushes for found and recycled materials such as discarded fragments of toys. 

Rachael’s paintings have a deep connection to the beauty within our environment and are often reminiscent of geographic landscapes. Rachael has found she has a human connection with the act of painting and through the movement of repetition creates a visual poetry within the works, often subconsciously.

Following her degree in Fine art, Rachael completed the three year postgraduate programme at the Royal Academy of Arts in London. She is a re-emerging artist, following a break from painting she began to paint seriously again in 2018. 

As well as exhibiting UK wide, selling her paintings nationally and internationally, her work has been accepted into several exhibitions. This includes the Jackson’s Open Painting Prize 2021, Ing Discerning Eye, Visual art Open and the Art Gemini Prize 2021 in which she won the People’s choice award. Rachael was a featured artist in the BBC documentary about the Royal Academy summer exhibition 2020.  Rachael is delighted to have recently won the accolade of “Manc of the Year” with Cotton Manchester.

Alongside painting, Rachael is a lecturer in Fine art.
