Rachel Eng (United States) Residence: July 2019
Rachel Eng grew up exploring the deciduous forests of Rochester, NY. Her work questions human’s perceptions of the natural world through the use of ephemeral and permanent materials including clay, plastic, paper, and found objects. Through repetitive patterns and the use of multiple elements, her work seeks to create complex visual and textural experiences.
Eng received her BFA from the Pennsylvania State University and her MFA from the University of Colorado at Boulder. In 2017 she was selected as a NCECA Emerging Artist and she has participated in residencies and exhibited internationally as well as in the United States. She currently teaches in the studio art program at Dickinson College in Carlisle, PA.
While at Studio Kura her work will reference the coastal and rural landscape of Itoshima, investigating the phenomenal aspects of the natural world and our current climate situation.
