Rachel Rinker (they/them) is an interdisciplinary artist currently based in Worcester, MA who works primarily in painting, drawing, collage and printmaking. Originally from South Carolina, US, with deep roots in both SC and MA, their practice often draws upon their connection to the vertical geography of the east coast and times of travel and leisure growing up in the South, looking back through a queer lens. Notions of interconnectedness, memory, accumulation, archive and entropy are explored as Rachel processes their states of being over time. Periods of rest are paramount to balance energetic bursts of rhythmic, painterly movements and the unfurling of visually stimulating environments full of layered history and human connection, reflecting life as it is experienced in a nonlinear fashion. Like ever growing scrapbooks of the present moment - cyclical and always subject to change.
