Rachel Rush Contemporary

I love the freedom of mixing up acrylics and stains with resin to create beautiful colours and depths within layers of work. There are no hard rules to follow and I love watching each piece take on its own vibrancy and energy.


Rush has evolved from my love of all the amazing street art from around the world - the alleyways of Melbourne, to the surviving slabs of the Berlin Wall, and the gritty streets of New York. I was inspired to capture the energy and feeling from the streets, and to put it up on canvas, creating each painting to become a piece of the bigger picture.
