Rachel Birns
Aptos, California

Rachel creates her abstract expressionist paintings in a shared studio space near Santa Cruz, California. Her compositions are visibly derived from real objects and scenes, but she distorts reality with gestural brush or knife work and creative use of color. Photographs and still life arrangements serve as inspiration for Rachel’s compositions. The viewer is left with subtle visual cues and descriptive titles to decipher representational objects within each tableau.
