Rachael Polson completed her Bachelor of Visual Arts with Honours from Adelaide Central School of Art in 2009. At the beginning of 2010, after nine years in Adelaide she and her family have moved to Timaru, New Zealand. From this busy time in her life, comes work motivated by the desire to stand still, to freeze time, to capture moments, to know where time goes.
Rachael’s works are a collection of sculptures, paintings and photographs. She explores brushstrokes captured in paint. The camera has also been used as a painting tool. By sweeping the camera across her own paintings she has ‘painted’ new works with the camera. Subsequent works are developed though a process of ‘cross pollination’ between media. Each work informs the next; consciously pollinating from paint to thread to camera image.
