Explorations of Physical Space: The Art of Rachel K. Bury
Rachel K. Bury is an American artist currently based in Austin, Texas. The artist’s portfolio centers on explorations of physical space, and two-dimensional images transformed into three-dimensional objects.
It’s interesting to see examples of artworks in both two and three dimensions in Rachel’s portfolio. The artist has perfected an interesting method of working, building up two-dimensional images in a kind of collage style and then rolling them into tubes, collecting these rolled images into rows that suggest walls or textured paintings in their own right, while masking several other complex, self-contained images, like parallel universes existing within a single art piece.
The artist’s portfolio also showcases Rachel’s work in two dimensions, in the form of abstracted collage-style artworks. I like the combination here of clean lines and figures with a dark, almost sombre colour palette. Bits of architecture, machinery and the occasional human figure take on a sci-fi aesthetic.
