Rachel Ann Stevenson
Rachel Ann Stevenson is a painter and sculptor. Her recent sculptural work has a much more dystopian feel.
I was really attracted to Stevenson's Virgil Echoes series (the rabbit girls). I was as I expected them to be by Kate Williamson. The two artists had come to a very similar creative output from very different start points, one could be Aesop's fairy tale compared to Hans Christian Anderson.
I was interested to find two artists come to such similar creative outputs, what does that say about the society we are in that can make independent thinkers come to the same place? Given that Rachel Ann Stevenson's latest work feels far more dystopian with gas masks and giant bugs as pets what does that predict for the future?
