Rachel Prince is an Australian abstract artist, working in Brisbane, Australia. Heavily inspired by locations such as the Girraween National Park, and the coastal scenes of Yuraygir, Prince’s art transforms the space in which it is hung, infusing it with positive energy, thus both rejuvenating the space and the audience. Her work is expressive and takes on the sophisticated representation and abstraction of our natural landscape. Utilizing her expert use of colour, Prince works with soulful and refined palettes to render her compositions. The delicacy of each piece works perfectly unframed but also look beautiful when encased in timber shadow frames, wonderfully complimenting the tonal variation within her work.
Each abstract landscape that I paint is created through a process of layering paint and experimenting with composition, mark-making and the colour palette. I always seek to express an ephemeral sense of balance, depth and luminosity – my art is often moody and sensorial and imbued with ideas of transience and renewal. Essentially, I create emotive works with broad interpretive scope that invite people to reflect and enrich their everyday lives.
