Rachel Wolfe

Creating Sublime Timescapes
(United States)

Rachel Wolfe (b. 1984, American) creates sublime timescapes proliferating beauty through public installations, images (photography, video), textiles, and sculptures. She conducts artistic research, and serves as a curator, consultant, voice talent, designer, writer, photographer, presenter, and educator.

Seeing the body as the generative force in cognition, her meditative works engage in allergory and eros. Her parietal interests in the ways places make people, somatics, psychology, kinesiology, magnetics, and history fuse with her life with synesthesia and formative experiences surrounded by Midwest farmland and forest, Byron nuclear generating station, and desire to live near the sea and mountains. She brings forth her sensitivities through art as a means to root poetic and geologically rooted stories. Her dynamic practices in performance inform her methods in art, research, and courses in Pattern Recognition, Visual Literacy, Body Architecture.

Tradition and Lineage guide her values and aesthetic choices. Her pragmatic orientation to the elements infuse her work often described as sensual and poetic, alongside her inquiries into the vision-body relationship while on residencies and teaching at Kjerringøy Land Art in Norway (2020), Angelot-Trélex Residency in Switzerland (2019), Praksis Oslo (2017). She holds a MFA from Otis College of Art and Design in Los Angeles, California (2015), BA in Advertising from Illinois Institute of Art in Schaumburg, Illinois (2006), and studied Butoh, Photography, History of Photography, Yoga, and Social Psychology in Norway, Illinois, and Japan (2013-2017). Her award-winning work is held in private and public collections, including monolithic image and text, Omniscient, awarded 1st in the Imaging New Eurasia exhibition in Gwangju, South Korea (2015). Albumen Gallery in (London), and The Print Atelier in (Montréal), represent several of her photographic series.
