Monster Mash Art Show

Check out the progress on my piece for the upcoming sQuishiepuss Monster Mash Art Show! sQuishiepuss is doing an artist interview countdown–there are a lot of really talented people involved. Follow the event page for more teasers!

Here’s my interview:

1) Who are you?

Hi, I’m Rachel.  I’m a multimedia artist/ fabricator/ designer.

2) Artist medium?

I love learning new things, so I’ve ended up working in a bunch of different mediums.  My background is in drawing, printmaking, and photography, but now I primarily paint in oil on wood and create sculptures made from resin or wool.

3) Favorite Monster?

The Pale Man from Pan’s Labyrinth.  He’s got eyes in his hands!

4) Describe your piece for the Monster Mash show? (This can be visually, or the inspiration behind it.)

I sculpted a brain with rainbows exploding out of it. The brain is made from a lightweight air-whipped epoxy clay, and the whole thing is finished with acrylics.  I enjoy things that are violently cute.

5) What is a fun fact about you?

I’m from the Atl area, but lived in Boston and then Chicago for a total of 8 years during/ after college. I got around on a bicycle, even in the snow, and usually lived on the third floor for some reason.  I miss the cities, but I don’t miss the snow.
