"Quiet and intricate" are words that come to mind when viewing the monochromatic works of Taranaki based emerging artist, Rachelle Sutherland.
Largely self taught, Rachelle specializes in an art form called Stippling or Pointillism. It is a time-consuming method of using small dots of ink to create an image, and pieces can take anywhere from 20 hours to 450 hours, one single dot at a time.
Rachelle finds inspiration from flora and fauna, culture and recently she has been exploring her own ancestral history. She enjoys working with the Stippling process as it allows her to be precise and detail orientated. She wants the viewer to experience 'getting lost in the details' of the dot intricacies then stepping back to see those dots form a recognisable image.
Rachelle has been part of various group exhibitions and had her first solo exhibition in 2019. An up and coming artist to watch with her next exhibition planned for March 2021 at Deciduus and Santie.
