Opening Reception: Friday, Feb 20th, 2015, 6-8pm
Exhibition runs through March 27th, 2015.
In Raychael Stine’s newest body of work, Chuparrosa, paintings on canvas and paper confidently propose that no event is truly unique. By layering abstract painterly gesture and deft representation, Stine creates scenarios where perception and perspective get confused. The work in Chuparrosa articulates the transitive relationship between form and material with an aim to create more space, and more looking. Stine defends the value of feeling in the context of contemporary art, as well as the importance of tenderness in everyday life.
Raychael Stine lives in Albuquerque and works as an Assistant Professor of Painting at the University of New Mexico. Her most recent solo exhibitions include galleries Inpost Artspace (Albuquerque, NM;) Jekyll & Hyde (Chicago, IL;) Eugene Binder (Marfa, TX;) and Marty Walker Gallery (Dallas, TX). Raychael holds a BFA from University of Texas at Dallas and an MFA from the University of Illinois, Chicago.
