Shannon Rakochy

Tapping Into the Unconscious

Rakochy was born in ‘The Prairies’, Saskatchewan, Canada. She studied at the Alberta University of the Arts in Calgary. She travelled to London and since then made the United Kingdom her home.
Her work often incorporates the photographic image/collage with paint. There is a focus on nature; the relationship between it, herself and the rest of humanity. This relationship is complex, beautiful, and tragic. When she works, she strives to tap into the subconscious rather than being too deliberate. Often the result has been simple imagery with dream-like narratives.

It Just Sort of Happened - acrylic and collage

As Shannon's work has evolved, the imagery has become more detailed in its composition. Using more symbolism and allowing the dialog between colour, shapes, and photographic imagery to tell a story.

She hopes the result is open to interpretation and may evoke discussion surrounding the emotion, story, or idea that a viewer may experience.
