Rachael Burke

Rachael Burke is a mixed media artist based in West Auckland. At a time of revolution in digital technology Rachael considers herself a pre-photoshop constructionist, manipulating images with paint, collage and photographic imagery. Rachael holds a deep fascination for the human condition and is particularly interested in Jung's view of the persona being a kind of mask designed to make a definite impression upon others, and on the other, to conceal the true nature of the individual. Rachael's portraits explore idea's of identity and selfhood using the mask as a means for conceptual investigation.
