Rachel Coad’s figurative painting practice spans 20 years. Well known as a figurative painter, she was awarded the $50,000 Black Swan Prize for portraiture in 2016. Figuration offers a vehicle for Coad to delve into existentialism, and the engagement of viewer to subject is key to the success of her work. Her monumental-scaled work is characterised by a limited palette and subtle tonal shifts.
Rachel Coad has shown in both Australia and the UK. In addition to Black Swan Prize, she has been shortlisted for numerous awards including the Metro 5 Award on two occasions (2006, 2007) and the Albany Art Prize. At the end of 2013, Coad was shortlisted for the BankWest Painting Prize and was voted as the winner of the People’s Choice.

Harvey Galleries was founded by the Harvey family in 1994 with an eye to establish a dynamic and inclusive contemporary art space on the North Shore of Sydney. For almost three decades we have expanded our reach to over three gallery locations and an ever expanding stable of the best artists Australia has to offer.
Harvey Galleries acknowledges the traditional custodians of the lands upon which our galleries stand. The Guringai people (Seaforth), the Gadigal people of the Eora Nation (Sydney), and the Bunurong Boon Wurrung and Wurundjeri Woi Wurrung peoples of the Eastern Kulin Nation (Melbourne).
We pay our respect to Elders past and present.
Always be the first to know about exhibitions, events and new art releases.
