About The Artwork

Painting: Acrylic and Paint on Wood. The edges have become 'launching pads' for 'surfing' space creating a 'floating' sense of place. My relationship with the internet has transformed for me the traditional notion of the way we view space in art works. The edges offer a point of departure and invite the viewer to claim their own space in their mind with their own experiences. I am inspired by Frank Stella who is 80 years old and still working. An American artist who created wall assemblages and sculptural forms. 

 Another artist I find inspiring is the late Elizabeth Murray, who died in 2007. She was known for her shaped canvases. She was credited with aiding and bringing back life to art in the late 70s and early 80s. 

I use colour as a vehicle for expression, imparting and capturing the essence of place. The urban place has a rhythm - the cars, the chairs, the plants, the noise, the people, the daily life on a street level. The poetics of place, where we rediscover ourselves. 

For me, freedom is breaking the restricted chains of the rectangular, creating new shapes - pushing contours into asymmetry and yet contemplating balance. Keywords: place, shaped, space, wood, cafe, Melbourne, colour, contemporary, australian art, Frank Stella, abstract, Elizabeth Murray

ARTIST STATEMENT: Rachel Rovay is a contemporary artist; her thematic focus is on the experience of living in and around Melbourne’s urban environment. My art practice is based on observation, investigation, and wonderment. I find inspiration in the street corner, outdoor cafes, botanical gardens, backyards, interiors, and our everyday life. My art seeks to connect the sensibility of nature and re-engage the viewer with its essence. The element of surprise keeps me absorbed through the discovery of the unique and the illuminating. The principles of colour and shape are critical in my work as both create a positive response to our structured lives. A pictorial impact creating a sense of energy, much like the sun stimulating new life within an ecosystem. Innovative art methods allow me to explore the wilderness of thought and perception. An awareness of the ordinary, drawing attention to our connection to the urban space, the day-to-day common place. The unremarkable becomes and transforms into the extraordinary.
