BIOGRAPHY

Rachel Wolfe is a synesthete and an artist moving between photography, studio practice, and installation. Seeing the body as the generative force in cognition, her work looks at the ways places make people, anthropogeny, and obscured histories. The wonder in the everyday and human connection with nature is brought into light with the ways technology manipulates forms in the imagination and sublime. Realized artworks nurture reverence for eros and beauty, the earth and site-specific histories. Several project-processes became experience-based learning courses. Wolfe’s award-winning work is held in private and public collections, including 1st place by the jury for her monolithic image and text, Omniscient, in the Imaging New Eurasia exhibition in Gwangju, South Korea.
