Rachel Q. Landers: Working

Rachel Q. Landers: Working

Artist Statement

Rachel Q. Landers earned a Bachelor of Arts in Studio Art,
with a concentration in Scientific Illustration from the University
of Georgia in 2006. She currently lives in Gainesville, Georgia.

Rachel’s artwork, by moving away from realism, acknowledges
that viewers bring a lexicon of experience and concurrent emotion
to a painting. She would like her artwork to encourage discourse -
facilitating storytelling and a sense of community. This holds a
significant place in her art and philosophy.

Tying together aspects of life and nature with spirituality, Rachel
creates mystery, in essence – possibilities. When creating her art,
she feels it is challenging as well as freeing to accept change and
adapt to what emerges. By layering perhaps unusual combinations
of shapes and colors which contrast and resolve, her work represents
life with its undulating tensions– and sometimes surprising beauty.
She wishes to broaden her outlook visually as well as in day to day
interactions. It is an optimistic process.

    Hope you like!  Most of my new work is a mix of Acrylic paint and Photoshop Collage.  I scan the work for reference. Then from there I match the element to my work to make sure the color and style match.  Weather it's pills I scan in or in this case small marbles.  I try in my work to bring in the old style of painting and up date it with fresh idea's.  Technology helps out there!  I also use layering colors that I pick up from a plastic sheet by scratching into the backs of the paper. After I have the image sharp I print out the missing elements and collage them into the final piece.
