Rachael Kidd

My Art is observation of a shifting boundary:

What we believe in landscape to be truly 'wild' - a wind blasted coast; a moorland fell - often these are written over by Man's hand in many ways. The weathering elements undo what Man proposes; the boundaries we set up submit to nature’s will. And in turn, the dry-stone wall or ancient furrows shape and arrange nature’s advance.

It is in these lawless margins that arise, I believe, unexpected beauties, in colour, texture, and form. Such liminal places, where countless exchanges between nature and humanity unfold, are those that I attempt to honestly record in my art. When out and about with my sketchbook and back in the studio I articulate what I have seen with my pastels and paints, delighting in the way in which the materials rebuild and translate whatever it was that originally caught my eye.
