"Postcards" is the latest Rachel Grant design to be published as a greetings card, this time by Canns Down Press for
their "Works On Paper" range.
Rachel Grant is a mixed media artist, whose working process has led to a distinctive style that is achieved through the layering of collage, found materials, screen print, transfer print, acrylic paint and machine embroidery. These multiple layers evoke a sense of history, building up metaphors for layers of time, experience and memory.
Inspired by the narratives that surround her in music, literature, film and everyday life, Rachel uses imagery and fragments of text to hint at hidden stories that lie quietly within each piece. Appealing to our shared human experiences of love, loss, learning, hope and determination, the artwork creates a momentary glimpse into an inner world of memory or dream.
Rachel's practice is highly diverse and spans original artwork and limited edition prints for gallery spaces, illustration projects, image licensing for greetings cards, paper and fabric design, as well as site responsive projects and socially engaged commissions.
