Rachel Wrigley

Artist Statement

By manipulating, deconstructing and distorting the architecture and objects that are within documents and imagery, Rachel Wrigley attempts to invent new forms; and provide a distorted version of reality by investigating space as a moveable, impermanent fixture. It is these explorations that Rachel likens to the process of drawing, trying out the potential for larger scale ideas. Her playful exploration of paper explores the boundaries between drawing and sculpture. It's papers potential as a sculptural material that allows her to re-imagine the way we create spaces and household objects.


Rachel Wrigley studied at The Wimbledon College of Art and graduated in 2012 with a BA (Hons) in Fine Art: Sculpture. In 2013 she took part in the first residency scheme at PAPER Gallery, Exploring PAPER. The residency expanded upon her relationship with paper and imagery in her practice and in 2014 she presented her first solo exhibition 'Staring at the Artex Ceiling'.
