Rachel Derum (1980) is an analogue and digital collage artist, exploring themes of identity, perception and consciousness through her surreal, figurative compositions. Rachel has held solo exhibitions in Melbourne and Sydney, and has been included in group exhibitions throughout the world. Her collages have featured in publications including Art Almanac, Australia, Collage Collective Co Annual 2016, Annual 2015 and Australian Avant Garde Magazine. Rachel is currently completing a sculptural collage public art project in collaboration with SBLA Landscape Architects. The work The Sacred Cave was created during Covid isolation when we were being in our separate little caves, at times lonely and isolating, and at other times our sacred havens.
