Ink | Watercolour | Creature - a Rachel Walker exhibition

Ink | Watercolour | Creature - a Rachel Walker exhibition

Quirky Fox’s final exhibition for 2015 opens Saturday 5 December.

Featuring work by Wellington artist Rachel Walker, Ink | Watercolour | Creature features an eclectic range of pieces blending traditional watercolour techniques with Rachel's unique approach: using the kitchen scrubbing brush, garden hose or even egg cups to add texture, movement and depth.

Born in Napier, Rachel studied design at Massey University in Wellington initially working in textiles before moving into graphic design, screen printing, video, and painting, to end up majoring in Illustration.

Having taken tea in Bilbo Baggin's kitchen and designed illustrations for the New Zealand Ballet, Rachel is currently exploring the theme of native and endangered (or extinct) creatures. Her work often juxtaposes animals into non traditional environments such as a polar bear into the rocky desert landscape of Morocco in North Africa.

Ink | Watercolour | Creature will feature a selection of originals and limited edition prints. The exhibition will open Saturday 5 December and run through to January 2016

Parallels with Nature
Parallels with Nature

Our latest exhibition is in many ways a study of duality: two artists studying two different strands of nature in simple tones of black and white; each artist carefully portrays the strength and fragility of life whether it is a drawing of an intricate teasel or the stippled portrayal of the mighty cape buffalo.
