Rachel and Shawn both make work inspired by the natural world, even as their individual art takes very disparate form and uses wildly divergent materials from each other. Rachel is a metal smith working with forged steel on a large-scale and Shawn is a painter and multimedia artist working with video, installation and performance.
The concepts surrounding their work; Shawn’s focus on environmentalism and Rachel’s keen awareness of social justice issues, are inextricably intertwined in the real world – and it’s this intersection that the new collaborative work explores.
Their 4-month exhibition will include 4-5 pieces of large-scale interactive sculpture of forged steel, fabric, video and sound.
