Rachel Theodorakis is an emerging artist and graduated from ANU School of Art & Design in 2017. During her studies she was nominated for the ‘International Sculpture Centre Outstanding Student Achievement in Contemporary Sculpture Award’. In addition, she was awarded the ‘John and Elizabeth Baker Sculpture Scholarship’ along with three other EASS Awards.
Rachel’s practice explores the themes of mortality and identity through the research of culture and traditions. She is deeply interested in the social interactions of our multicultural community and how her work may affect change in others to broaden their acceptance of our richly diverse community.
Her most recent works utilise bones as icons of self. Although Rachel’s work is created through deeply personal narratives, once in the public domain she intends the viewer to experience it in their own subjective way. The only evidence left of her personal narrative lies within the titles.
Since leaving ANU, Rachel has consistently exhibited work and continues to develop her practice.
