Everyone should have artistic expression in their lives, not only people with spare time or big budgets. Sustainable materials are the preference of Rachel Smith, the artist behind the senselessart studio.
In 2020/21 Rachel's work took a new direction. Moving away from watercolour, she finds the play of light and shadow created by hanging paper and lightboxes to be pulling her down a new path. Making complex ideas into single shapes is a challenge and when she finds that perfect shape that conveys a whole story it is incredibly exciting. The more she works with paper, the more possibilities emerge.
In response to the lack of face to face classes during the time of Covid, the HK Mail Art Club came into being - a weekly mail out of DIY art kits to do at home. The kits invite you to assemble, colour and construct paper based figures, while learning about the natural world.
