Mandy Racine

S

plashes of Rococo flair form across Mandy Racine’s canvases in expressive, experimental brushstrokes as she creates work that places a contemporary twist on the works inspired by the old

masters.

While the artist’s inspirations may come from the past, her techniques and compositions are firmly in the present; as the traditional art forms are interpreted in new, expressive ways. Abstract elements are found and explored amongst the figurative subjects and the spaces between with vivid colour borne from dreams. With layers of

thick brushstrokes and an experimental mix of media which may include charcoal, acrylic, plaster, latex and varnishes, the figure is both hidden and revealed upon the canvas. Throughout her artistic career Racine has exhibited widely across the UK and Europe in group and solo shows, as well as having her work regularly published. Her work can be found in private collections around the world – from Europe, the US and Canada to United Arab Emirates, South Africa, Puerto Rico and Mexico. mandyracine.com mandy@mandyracine.com
