Creative Designer at Immortal Bloom.
Rachel Rea’s journey of creative practice began in adolescence, ambition leading her to move from Country Antrim to Yorkshire for study in costume design and textiles. Later working professionally in film productions and events, Rachel has since built upon and utilized her skills for her more recent projects in creating artistic sculptures and installations.
In her current work, Rachel’s interest in mediums that engage audiences in a sensory way can be perceived, such as light, textiles and other three-dimensional forms that make the physical aspects of an installation. Works can be tactile, visual and atmospheric, and with the choice of topics in the work she makes and collaborates in, these techniques are effective in communicating some pressing concerns of our time: waste and consumption of plastic products, and the devastation of vital ecological systems by climate change.
In necessary spirit, Rachel does not always produce work alone. With experienced appreciation and understanding of the production values behind screen and stage, Rachel also uses her strengths for collaboration with other skilled practitioners, as well as facilitation of public involvement in the construction of art works.Source: https://rachelreaart.co.uk/about
