• Over The Streambed A Body Formed From the Light Refracted in Waves, 2018, film photography

 

 

Rachel Wolfe (b. 1984 Dixon, Illinois, lives in Trondheim, Norway) is an artist moving between between photography, studio practice, and installation. Using tools and understandings within performance, psychology, and abstraction, her work looks at relationships in epistemologies and environments. Seeing the body as the generative force in cognition and using interests in anthropogeny, obscured histories, and ways humans connect with nature, Wolfe creates sensual images and immersive installations. The ways places make people are brought into light with ways technology manipulates forms: of imagination, the sublime, and reality. Nurturing reverence for eros and beauty, the final art incorporates site-specific histories embedding meaning in both material and representational choices. She exhibits and works internationally on private, commercial, and consulting projects. The monolithic image and text, Omniscient, was awarded 1st place by the jury in the Imaging New Eurasia exhibition in Gwangju, South Korea. Drawing upon formative training in dance, voice, piano, and education and work within fields of Interiors, Design, and Advertising, Rachel looks to work with the Woven Image.
