Rachelle  Kearns

Stimulated by study of abstract and lyrical expressionist art, Rachelle explores compositional drama with an emphasis on repetition and process in a graceful and convincing manner. Her paintings present a moment that resides somewhere between the real and the artificial – like the illusion of wind and light seen through closed eyelids. Her work displays an unerring sensitivity to line, color and form. Using acrylic paint as her medium, she redefines water, land or wind as deep, luminous bands of blended color. Points of light become overlapped and repeated layers, dancing intoxicatingly over the surface.

Rachelle continually achieves an authentic visual poetry that is aesthetic, tender and organically generated from her study and feelings of the world around her. She sees her works as giving voice to the easily overlooked, unseen, or missed moments of truth and beauty all around us – each work expressing a kind of ‘faith’ in her own invisible realities.
