Rachael Bridge is an artist from New York whose oil paintings have gained notoriety in the dark art movement. Rachael's style is a unique take on traditional portraiture, which she warps to create an otherworldly, dreamlike aesthetic. Her works often resemble film stills, offering a snapshot of the protagonist during a moment of a deep, ominous trance. There is a wealth of emotion in the eyes of Rachael’s sinister characters, and their harrowing stories are told in their luminous gazes. Each delicately rendered painting is a deeply personal, and unique manifestation of her own  narrative. Rachael currently lives and works in New Jersey.

 

 

"Saturated in color, each character tells a sinister story that only the painter knows. Glossy vixens rise from the brushes of a young master, often wet and sultry. They float, they smoke, and exist in a dark wonderland. Shrouded in shadows, their colors pop from the canvas, conveying and eerie light. "   -loBurn Magazine
