The color pink may be named after the flower, coming from the frilled edge of the flowers: the verb “to pink” dates from the 14th century and means “to decorate with a perforated or punched pattern”. WIKIPEDIA

An important part of Rachael Archibald’s practice involves playing with the conventions of artistic categories and conforming them into an all inclusive art form through the use of digital technologies. Departing from traditional ways of making art, Archibald is more at home in the digital environment, an accessible and flexible space that allows her to explore an expanding range of creative possibilities and outcomes. With these digital processes at hand, trackpad and keyboard, her ideas can be produced rapidly, multiplied infinitely, and disseminated instantly.


Since completing a Bachelor in Fine Art from the Queensland College of Art, Rachael Archibald has established herself firmly within the global digital arts community. Although living and working in Brisbane, Australia, the majority of her work has been exhibited both overseas and online. Her foray into the online art community was in the 2014 New Digital Art Biennale – The Wrong, held at various sites across the web.


From this, she gained increasing attention and opportunities throughout the year with printed fabric works shown in Venice for the group show, Venturi Effect, videos in Bristol for Bending Light and another shown on office shelves simultaneously in New York and Dresden for Official Office. This year her artwork flew high in the form of a flag, alongside 15 other notable digital artists’ in Berlin for Long Distance Gallery at the Transmediale Festival. Currently she is expanding her practice into graphic arts and visual communication; having already designed posters, cover art and promotional media for other artists, musicians and galleries.
