Rachelle Sawatsky

Rachelle Sawatsky is an artist and writer whose paintings, drawings, ceramics and writing explore internal narra ves and sensory percep on. Recent works by the artist draw on childlike subjects and ideas—animal characters rendered in vivid colour, the imagined interiors of lumpy bodies, and joyful, scribbled weathers, conjuring alternating currents of dream, memory and other visionary experience. The drawings are presented as a poem, to be read through their titles, and punctuated with ceramic asterisks, which have been screenprinted and painted with watercolour washes. Combining allegory and intuition, the works are at once abstract and familiar, formal and spontaneous.
