RACHEL ROCHFORD FEATURED FAVES
CENTRAL RANGE: A TINY PIECE OF PAINTED PARDISE
Every piece in Rachel Rochford’s Central Range Collection is an exquisite work of art. Abstract acrylic brushstrokes meticulously hand painted by Rachel on wood or leather, connected with distinctive hand sculpted, drawing with wire, which mirror aspects of the painted lines creating miniature, one of a kind, creations handcrafted in Trinidad and Tobago.
The Central Range Collection is inspired by the colourful, exotic, flora, fauna, vistas, natural wonders and people that exist in the tropical landscape of Trinidad and Tobago. Each side of an earring is half of a larger canvas with subtle variations on each side. The complete painting emerges when worn side by side. The titles of the artisan products are gateways into the abstracted world created by Rachel. Illustrating the strong connection between the conceptual philosophy behind the 2021 Central Range Collection and the core inspirational island elements at the creative heart of the art in the handcrafted jewellery and artisan products created by Rachel Rochford.
DRAWING WITH WIRE
One long strand of plated wire is bent, by hand, by Rachel Rochford into geometric shapes from a mental 2D line drawing into a miniature 3D sculptural one of a kind artwork. Strands of wire expertly manipulated by Rachel Rochford into unique artisan jewellery.
Abstract sculptural artworks mesmerize the viewer and each person will see something slightly different in each artistic creation. Line art to adorn the body by Rachel Rochford, meticulously hand-sculpted, transformed from the pictorial plane to sculptural, expressive, distinctive artisan jewellery individually handmade in Trinidad and Tobago.
GOLDEN LINE DRAWINGS
Whenever Rachel needs a boost, she always returns to her foundation and first love line drawings. Out of all the mediums and techniques that Rachel Rochford utilizes in her artistic creations, line drawing is her most loved technique. These latest line drawings are inspired by the abstracted patterns found in Rachel's world.
