Introducing: Rachel MacFarlane

Residency Dates: June 17- 23, 2013

Rachel MacFarlane (rachelmacfarlane.blogspot.com) uses tiny maquettes made of found refuse that serve as references for painted worlds that fall somewhere between mimetic representation and abstraction. Through a two-step process of translating and transforming, materials that are considered unattractive and unwanted become the basis for imaginary painted spaces. In the illusionary settings, materials transcend their original capacities, sometimes becoming weightless, anthropomorphic, and grandiose. She lives and work in Toronto, Canada. She has participated in studios in Brooklyn, Florence and Ireland. She has shown in Canada, United States and Europe. She is represented by Nicholas Metivier Gallery in Toronto.
