Rachel Wrigley

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. Biography Rachel graduated from Wimbledon College of Art in 2012 with a BA (Hons) in Fine Art: Sculpture, in 2013 she completed PAPER's first ‘Exploring PAPER’ residency and presented her first solo exhibition 'Staring at the Artex Ceiling' in 2014 at the gallery. Rachel is now based in Manchester and regularly participates in exhibitions across the UK.
