Rachael Bellis exhibition launch – #LifeWithNoLabels
Rachael Bellis is a Manchester based mixed media artist working predominantly, but not exclusively, in paper collage. Originally from the Wirral, Rachael studied art to A-level in Liverpool and – following something of a hiatus – is now continuing to work on a self-taught basis.
A love of words in all their guises plays a big part in Rachael’s work, either through her use of text within her work, or in the inspiration she takes from stories, song lyrics or poems.
The majority of Rachael’s work addresses issues she feels strongly about and/or the way media and society affect our behaviours, opinions and attitudes. This often stems back to questions surrounding how we perceive each other, why this may be and the effects this has.
While studying, she had work accepted into an International Women’s Day exhibition in Liverpool and since recommencing her work last year, she has had work featured in ‘Average Art’ magazine and donated and sold work at charity auction in Liverpool. This year, she has exhibited as part of a group show ‘She Will Need Her Sisterhood’ and had work on show at University Hospital, Liverpool. Rachael has an upcoming solo show in Manchester in June.
On June 29th, Rachael will be launching her exhibition as part of #LifeWithNoLabels. There will be free cocktails provided by Absolut so come down from 6pm.
