Meet: Rachael Anderson

Meet Kickstart artist: Rachael Anderson (SA) 💥

Rachael Anderson is a 22-year-old Adnyamathanha woman currently living on Barngarla Country (Whyalla) in South Australia. Beginning in 2018, Rachael offers a unique series of works centred around identity, womanhood, systems, and life. Whilst Rachael experimented with watercolour in her early career, it is linework, print and digital work that has allowed for considerable growth and experimentation, ultimately refining her skills and general practice.

Right now, she is excited by exploring new mediums such as lino print, general exploration with printing and altering images.


Rachael joins the 2021 Kickstart cohort alongside Delali Zevon-Aniakwah (ACT), Jocelyn Tribe (NT), Kartanya Maynard (TAS), Devika Bilimoria and A Hanley (VIC), Ivy Mutuku (VIC), Prue Stevenson (VIC), Elham Eshraghian-Haakansson (WA), Rhanjell Villanueva (QLD) & Re-Right Collective (NSW).

For twenty years Kickstart has worked with early-career artists, inspiring them to create their most ambitious work to date, presented at Next Wave Festival in Melbourne. Alongside our plans for 2022 and beyond, we reconsider and reinvent what our legacy commissioning and artist development program could be.
