Rachel Personett
Irises

2018

$4,000

About

Painted from life, a grouping of irises stand tall against a black backdrop. A classical painting subject and style, with a fresh and intriguing touch. Rachel Personett was born in Hawaii, but raised in Colorado. Being the daughter of a pilot she has always traveled extensively. She has studied part time at the Savannah College of Art and Design, The Angel Academy of Art, and finally settled on the Florence Academy of Art, graduating in 2015. In January 2016 she apprenticed the painter Odd Nerdrum in Norway for eight months. Rachel Personett works strictly from life, and enjoys the challenged of painting the ephemeral. Working from life provides the opportunity to travel around the world painting the ever changing people and landscapes. Artist Statement My mother had studied advertising in college, so she knew a lot about arts and good craftsmanship. She did talks at my elementary school each week and on a different artist. I remember being very moved by the images of Van Gogh and Andrew Wyeth. At the Florence Academy I really liked Sargent, Sorolla, Willard Metcalf, Henri Fantin-Latour and Velazquez. At Odd Nerdrums I gained new respect for Rembrandt and was introduced to other Scandinavian painters like Edward Munch, Anders Zorn, and Fritz Thaulow. I currently am really inspired by the 19th century painters like Monet, Manet, Degas. And more modern painters like Andrew and Jamie Wyeth, Ben Fenske, Daniela Astone, Michael Kline, Marc Dalessio, Dmitriy Permiakov.
