Rachel Favelle

Oil | Acrylic | Mixed Media

Note: I work with water based oils

Rachel Favelle is a Pop Surreal artist and illustrator, who is inspired by the flora and fauna of Australia that she experienced during her childhood living in the country. Her surreal imaginings emerge in the meticulously rendered oils paintings, drawings and sculptures, which whisk the viewer away to other worldly places. While Rachel’s work frequently focusses on serious themes of wildlife conservation, her symbolic narratives are balanced by the wonder of childhood evident through her surreal style . ‘My work exists in a space suspended between reality and dreams. I want to acknowledge the importance of childhood memories and imaginative play. Children have an instinctive curiosity when it comes to nature, I want people to revisit this experience in order to think more deeply about how they engage with their surroundings.’

With degrees in illustration and art education, Rachel has been an advocate for the art industry for the past twenty years. Career highlights include exhibiting with Beautiful Bizarre Magazine in their museum show, ‘Interconnected’ in 2022, a solo show in Chicago and numerous exhibitions across Australia, Portugal, the United States and New Zealand. Rachel has been a repeat finalist in the Art Lovers Australia Art Prize, Lethbridge 20000 Small Scale Art Awards, the Border Art Prize and the Rotary Arts Spectacular.

ABOUT THE ARTIST

Artwork by Grahame Booth

‘I grew up in a small country town near the Warrumbungle National Park. Sitting around campfires, riding down dirt roads and climbing trees to pick mulberries in my back yard opened my eyes to the beauty in nature. The environment I grew up in allowed me to interact with wildlife and appreciate the tranquility of nature. Many of my characters reflect this sense of solitude, a connection to their surroundings and the creatures that inhabit that environment.’

Inspired by my research into fairytales and classic children’s literature during my Illustration degree, I have been intrigued by the art of storytelling. I seek to illustrate not only the impact of an environment but also a character’s internal moral dialogue. Each individual has the potential for light and shade, good and evil. It is this duality that I find intriguing.

While I have been focused on the storytelling of fairytales and mythology of other cultures in previous bodies of work, I have recently felt drawn back to the narratives and wonder of my own childhood in the country. Most importantly, you should never lose your sense of curiosity and your ability to dream. Through Surrealism I am given the avenue to do just that.’
