Rachael Pease


Born Franklin, Indiana (1980)

Rachael Pease studied chemistry at Purdue University in West Lafayette, Indiana, in 1999 and, graduated with a Bachelor of Fine Art degree, with a biology minor, from Indiana University, Bloomington, in 2004. She was awarded an Indiana University International Experience Grant to study in Florence, Italy, in 2002. She earned her Master of Fine Art degree with a concentration in painting from the University of Pennsylvania School of Design in Philadelphia in 2006.

Rachael’s work is inspired by poetry and her experience of life on an Indiana farm – the ideas of control and display. Her recent body of work deals with the ephemeral quality of existence and is expressed on gossamer fabrics or mylar, which are stained and delicately coloured. Rachael’s recent subjects seem to arise out of her interest in science – at times a Rorschach test and, by times an x-ray – always as if a specimen to be recorded and then analyzed. The delicacy of her rendering and the poetic sentiments her works embody are a testament to her reverence and wonder at what they represent.Rachael has participated in many group exhibitions and is the recipient of many important honors and awards.
