Rachel WhitereadEnglish artist Rachel Whiteread is best known for her sculptures, especially Ghost - a large plaster cast of the inside of a room in a Victorian house - her resin sculpture for the empty plith in London's Trafalgar Sqaure and her work Embankment for Tate Modern's vast Turbine Hall, which consisted of around 14,000 translucent white polyethylene boxes.
Rachel won the annual Turner Prize in 1993 (the first women to ever win the prize) and is one of the Young British Artists.
In 2011 Rachel was commissioned to create a print for the 2012 Olympics, which consists of a pattern of overlappng 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.
