While Rachel Whiteread is best known for her sculptural work, drawing has always remained a critical part of her practice. She has described drawing as being like a diary of her work, whilst memory remains a key theme. For 'LOndOn 2O12', she has composed a pattern of overlapping rings in the Olympic colours. The rings explore the emblem of the Olympic Games, and also represent marks left by drinking bottles or glasses. They act as memories of a social gathering, such as the athletes in the stadium during the opening ceremony or the spectators of the Olympic Games.
Rachel Whiteread creates elegant and poetic sculptures which explore architecture, space, absence and memory. Often inspired by the physicality of the human body, her works are poignant for their exploration of intimate domestic spaces and household objects. Typically her sculptures are casts of the negative space surrounding or within an object. She is also a prolific draughtsman and printmaker, her two-dimensional work shares the primary concerns of her sculptures: texture and surface; void and presence; and the subtle observation of human traces in everyday life.
