an Exhibition of Rain Paintings

January 28 - March 10
ABOUT THE EXHIBITION
Rem(a)inders is the culmination of a body of work exploring prehistoric skeletons as subject and content by Rachell Hester. These new works on unsized, rain-soaked canvas allow Hester to explore a mysterious past on earth that is evidenced by the remaining fossils of life forms that can never be again. Using the element of rain - the resource that is so vital to the survival of our species - imprints the canvas enabling Hester to dig around in the resulting abstractions to find the remainders of life that she depicts with acrylic and ink.
