Rachel Whiteread

 

The artist of the week is Rachel Whiteread. She is the first woman to win the Turner prize. She is a sculptor who works with all sorts of materials. One of her most famous pieces of work is a concrete cast of a house! Have a look at her piece called 'Embankment'. This is what the infamous critic Brian Sewell said about it, "It looks like a random pile of giant sugar cubes. Luckily, the £400,000 sponsored work is recyclable." Have a look and see what you think!
