Rita Chamberlain is an artist and writer. She has an interest in ideas surrounding, impression, the fragility of a moment and the elusive nature of experience. Writing, more specifically creative 'non-fiction', acts as a device to convey these thoughts that often feature alongside works of abstraction.
Before studying at the Royal College of Art, Rita graduated with a First Class Hons. BA in Painting from UAL, Wimbledon College of Art. She was nominated for the Freelands Award 2021 and exhibited in shows such as GIFC /Velvet Ropes show 2019: House of Vans, London. When studying at Wimbledon College of Art, she began to organically merge the boundaries between literature and painting whereby both practises started to inform and influence the other.
As a student at the Royal College of Art, Rita co-wrote and hosted Silken Reference: Blued – a collective formed with students on the Writing programme. The collective produced a zine whereby each participant created short prose/poetry on a selected theme.
