Bubble Vibe



Rae West

mixed media on board

1100 x 800mm


Commissioned for Socially Distanced Yet Creatively Connected, an exhibition in response to the global pandemic and inspired by our collective experience of lockdown.


Artist’s statement:

References to our covid bubbles.  The dark verses light just touching, still connecting but separate. The dark bubble representing the darkness of the virus, death and the battle the world faces... and above, the golden light at the end of the tunnel, the positivity being created out of this pandemic; a rethinking of the importance of kindness and love and seeing word humanity as one entity connected to the yin yang of life.

About the Artist

Rae West

Rae is a mid career full time New Zealand Artist. Her Studio is based in the quite seaside village of Haumoana, close to Napier.

Rae West produces striking contemporary abstract paintings that use free pouring techniques in resin. Her works pulse with the kinetic freedom of fluidity and light. She uses multiple veils of pigment, resin and ink, which blend and react against each other creating beautiful forms and textures. The end results are spontaneous, subconscious, and sensual.
