Rachel Castle 


      Entitled BLOOM, this exhibition celebrates Rachel’s eternal love affair with all things floral. We’re especially honoured to host this show, as it will be Rachel’s first solo exhibition in Melbourne.

‘BLOOM is a culmination of all my painting and screen print strokes over the past few years. It’s a big final BANG of all my favourite colours, textures, layers and treatments.’ – Rachel Castle.

The big paintings have at least 3, and sometimes up to 5, layers of paint, spots and wash before I start the agonising top layer’ says Rachel. ‘I take a deep breathe and make those final strokes, one colour at a time. Some of the flower marks require up to 10 layers to get the paint rich and bright and consistent enough. Finally I paint and print the last few spots, which is really the best bit, the fun bit.’
