Artist Profile: Rachel Arif
insideKENT catches up with resident artist Rachel Arif who has been keeping herself busy during lockdown. Rachels work is known for its Turneresque aesthetic so these new works are slightly different in that they’re very bright and uplifting.
Moving forward I’ll be incorporating more floral/landscape works. There’s always going to be coastal works, but it’s nice mixing things up a bit. In between homeschooling my two children, I’ve also been donating various sketches for Covid 19 related charities and have donated a recent landscape work to Sketches for Survival, a global art initiative highlighting the plight of elephants and other iconic species. The works will be up for auction and exhibited at OXO Gallery Southbank later on in the year.
