|“A Picture is Worth a Thousand Pictures”
||By Rachel Burgess
||May 31, 2017 – July 15, 2017
Rachel’s work is about memory. She grew up in New England and most of her pieces are inspired by aspects of the landscape that stood out to her as a child. Rachel is interested in the discrepancy between what we experience and how we remember it; the way we take a specific moment and turn it into an abstract memory. Her landscapes depict places, as they exist in her mind’s eye, as a collection of key colors, or a memorable silhouette. She aims to capture an essence or mood, rather than a detailed rendering.
