Coad's muted and intense works delve deeper into subconscious thought and uncover an unhindered engagement with the inner-self. Coad’s figures engage with outer situations, rather than with the viewer. In a return to the themes which dominated Coad’s 2014 series, Juncture, the artist endeavours to describe another unguarded moment in human interaction.
Rachel Coad has exhibited in both Australia and the UK. In addition to winning the $50,000 Black Swan Prize in 2016, she has been shortlisted for numerous awards including the Metro 5 Award, Albany Art Prize and The Kilgour Art Prize.
