Rachel Maclean Scottish , b. 1987

Over the last 10 years, Rachel Maclean has shown widely in the UK and internationally, in galleries, museums, film festivals and on television. Maclean produces elaborate films and digital prints using extravagant costume, over-the-top make-up, green screen vfx and electronic soundtracks.


Maclean’s artwork is both seductive and disturbing, it sucks the viewer into oversaturated candy coloured worlds and repels them with unsettling themes and narratives. Until recently she has been the only actor in her films and prints, exploring issues of identity, class, nationalism and gender, whilst referencing narrative structures from pop culture and fairy-tales.
