The common thread of inspiration which runs through my work is kinetics: whether in the form of light, sound or energetic movement. My artistic practice is informed by human experiences and through photography and print sampling, I develop visual research. These images are reconfigured and integrated into my work, which explores colour, texture and distortion of form.

Rankine’s horses are not portraits of bloodstock, but evocations of the strength, elegance and movement embodied by the animal. His figurative works are more character studies than portraits, evoking the unknown inner life of the sitter with a few deft strokes of light. His still-lifes play with perception and surfaces, trompe l’oeils which are portraits of imagined works. His most recent work brings the conversation piece up to date, with scenes of modern life played out across different planes of existence.

These references frequently form a kind of oblique structure behind a piece of her work, often lending a form for a composition or providing the impetus behind the choice of materials.
