Rachel Shearer is an audio and visual artist based in Auckland. Her visual work has been marked by its overlap with sound.
As an artist Shearer has been exploring site-specific sound installation practice. Her most recent public commission, The Flooded Mirror (2011) is a permanent sound installation situated in the Wynyard Quarter on Auckland’s newly developed waterfront. She sound designs and composes for film. Active as an experimental musician since the late 1980’s, Rachel has released material with labels Xpressway (NZ), Flying Nun (NZ), Ecstatic Peace (US), Corpus Hermeticum (NZ), Family Vineyard (US) among others.
