Rachel Goldsmith
Brooklyn, NY
Neighborhood: Brooklyn Heights



ARTIST STATEMENT: My process of creating, the repetitive movements of my hand, is a mind-clearing practice that yields intricate art. Each piece is a record of the path that my hand has traveled, a visual map of the movements that allow me to enter my flow-state. My artwork is inspired by two sets of contrasts: In my environment, the contrast between man-made and nature; and in materials, the contrast between the control I have over the media and how the media naturally interact with each other. This inspiration manifests itself in my final pieces through contrasts in color, in line, shape and form, and in textures. The scientific, almost stringent and exact, aspects of the environment are reflected in my obsessive attention to detail. These details are added through a very controlled use of materials. In contrast, the spontaneous aspects of nature are present in the organic and fluid aliveness of my compositions, often created through allowing the materials to combine in an uninhibited fashion. My artwork exemplifies my persona.It all speaks of me: energetic yet peaceful, playful and imaginative yet sophisticated. AndůMaking art makes me happy.
