Rachel Fish at the view

Take a look at the view on Bridge Street, Winchester, to see the latest exhibition of work by local artist Rachel Fish.

Rachel graduated in Fine Art Printmaking from Manchester Metropolitan University in 1995, combining printmaking techniques with photography, and has worked since then as a professional photographer, using film and high-end digital equipment, which fired her fascination with colour.

Rachel says "Colour affects us deeply. It has a power to alter our mood, and to lift our spirits. My aim in this range was to capture the texture, colours and strong lively forms to create an image that suggests movement and energy. I enjoy what I do.  I am driven by the need to create and knowing the pleasure other people have from seeing or owning a piece of my work. "

Rachel exhibited in Sydney before returning to the UK in 2002 to live in Winchester, concentrating on collaborative projects with designers and architects.

Rachel's work, which includes close-up full colour photographic images of organic forms such as flowers, is on display until Thursday 2 September.

the view is intended for the display of work by student or early career artists who live in the Winchester District. Anyone interested in more information should contact Marilyn Michalowicz at Winchester City Council on 01962 848175.
