Artist Rachel Dubbe (1973) creates artsworks and mixed media installations, using found objects and organic materials like paint, gold leaf, wood and linen. Her work explores transience, beauty and the human condition.
After studying photography at the Royal Academy of Art in The Hague Dubbe travels the world, shooting lifestyle series for international magazines. Back in The Netherlands she founds her own studio with a focus on portraiture, inspired by the refined play with colour and light of seventeenth century Dutch masters. By meticulously layering photographic images and paint on large unframed canvasses she transforms her intricately styled portraits into timeless objects.
Rachel Dubbe often works in a large format and is fascinated by contrast, patina and texture.
Her work has been acquired by private art collectors and is often chosen by interior designers and architects as a focal point for public spaces.
