Rachel Strum is a contemporary artist based in Taos, New Mexico. Originally from New York, she studied at the School of Visual Arts in Manhattan where she received a BFA in Fine Arts in 2007.
While her earlier works were heavily grounded through the mediums of installation and sculpture, Rachel is currently revisiting painting as her medium of choice. Through the manipulation of space and color as her visual language, she investigates the relations of abstract and representational, elusive vs. tangible, and the realms that exist in between. On the cusp of vivid landscapes, Rachel’s Colorscapes series is inspired by the universal constants; transition, growth, and adaptation.
