Rachel Howfield

Artist, Project manager, Arts development worker, Gallery educator

Rachel Howfield is a visual artist working across several disciplines. Her work explores how we become who we are, our public and private selves. Her work addresses themes of identity, connection and belonging, with reference to feminism and post-feminist ideologies. She works with video, found objects and 'making' to investigate how fragile layers of meaning and 'truth' are built on memories that are shifting and unstable. Howfield is also a project manager, facilitator and workshop leader. read full statement
