Original Signed Artworks & Limited Edition Prints For Sale

Rachel Whiteread is a sculpture artist from England. Most of her sculptures are casts, a form of art in which liquid, such as plaster or melted metal, is poured into a mold and hardened. Rachel Whitehead attended a few different art schools, studying painting and sculpture.
 
« I don't want to make plop art — sculpture that just gets plopped down in places. I wouldn't want to litter every corner of the world with my sculpture. »
Rachel Whiteread
Many of Rachel Whitehead's sculptures are casts of everyday objects, so that the sculpture is actually composed of the negative space inside or around an object. One of her most well-known pieces, called "House," is a concrete cast of the interior of an entire Victorian-era house.
 
« I think the difference between me and some of the other YBAs [Young British Artists] was that I was ambitious for the work, and not ambitious for myself. »
Rachel Whiteread

Over the course of her career as an artist, starting in the 1980s, she has also cast a closet, the underside of a bed, the empty space around furniture, and much more. Since her sculptures deal with negative space, the theme of a lot of Whitehead's work is death and loss. Going along with this theme, she has often been commissioned to create monuments to loss, such as her Holocaust monument in Austria.
