Rachel uses oil paint to create an illusion of Textile like Embroidery. Creating delicate and intricate pieces that have an almost monumental and sculptural feel.
Blue Lilly and Yellow Hibiscus were inspired by Rachel’s recent study of Santa Fe History and her fascination with the works and life of Georgia O’Keefe.
Rachel Daly is an English Artist living in Connecticut. Born and raised in Florence, Italy, surrounded by an abundance of history, culture and the eccentricities of life in an artistic circle, her childhood has without doubt heavily influenced her aesthetic and sense of space and material. After attending Wimbledon and Slade Art foundations in London, she went on to be accepted at Camberwell Art School in South London to study Drawing. Constantly questioning how materials can be used, how simplified forms take up space or blend into their environment, Rachel discards the “rules” and focuses in on instinctual form and mark-making.
Seeing and admiring the Artworks by Rachel Daly as an Art Curator, three expressions come to my mind: uniqueness, to transcend, and creative mastership. Rachel Daly Art is unique in concept, as she transforms in an art creation a common object, a line, or a color, changing their essence and use to make them into a one-of-a-kind Artwork achieved by her clever intervention and arrangement of them. She has the power to transcend reality and to make it to go into another dimension that deeply produces in the viewer admiration, excitement, and the learning that anything can become pleasantly different when it is intervened through Art. Rachel Daly has the capacity to compose a unique Artwork to go beyond reality with her creative mastership.
I will say that Rachel Daly is a Master in her artistic career because she does something in her own way that no one has done before and she reaches cleverly managed results, therefore she is not only an artist that makes her art, she is really a clever and innovative Art Master with the capacity to deliver Art that will become a unique visual impact and connection to the public with her Artworks that nobody can copy or imitate their creative conception, as Rachel Daly has a very distinctive artistic style.
Each person goes through events in their life which can include the influence of the countries where they have lived, the studies they have made, their family experiences, and when all this happens to a highly creative mind as Rachel Daly, she has the extraordinary capacity to make a statement to the world with her Art remarkably intellectual and inspiring. Moreover, each viewer of any identity and age can receive a unique and distinctive enrichment from Rachel Daly Art. by Mariavelia Savino, Curator
