Rachel Burgess
St. Hillary's

2017

About

Rachel Burgess' landscapes are explorations of memory and the resonance of nature's forms. She begins her artistic process with plein air paintings and drawings which she completes in her studio, simplifying and abstracting forms from their original composition. The resulting landscapes are evocative and minimal, allowing the viewer to project their own perceptions and experiences onto them. "St. Hillary's"is from a series of Burgess' black and white monotypes, which take the vast landscapes seen in her diptychs and simplify them to compositions of light and shadow. In this artwork, the artist flips the frame of the landscape from the traditional horizontal to vertical. This fresh orientation allows the viewer to be more immersed in the artwork, exaggerating the perspective and scale of the composition. Burgess opts for a grayscale palette which gives this piece a dreamlike quality. The white of the paper acts as the brightest highlights in the reflective water and sun-soaked clouds. Gestural swaths of black and grey mimic the airy movement of tall grasses, which contrast with the precise, angular lines comprising the church and telephone lines in the distance.
