Un-easement: A Tony Hungerford Memorial Art Gallery Exhibition

Un-easement by Rachel Schechtman

Un-easement by Rachel Schechtman
September 5 - 28 at the La Plata Fine Arts Center, Tony Hungerford Memorial Art Gallery

Rachel Schechtman’s work explores the body and its associated anxieties through the lens of commonplace material explorations. Through the use of small scale experiments, she is able to uncover the sometimes hidden possibilities and meaning inherent within an object or substance. She most commonly uses materials that change over time. These elements crystallize, grow, wither, etc. The dynamic behavior of the materials allow her the room to both collaborate with the materials as well as be surprised by them.

Rachel Schechtman is an interdisciplinary artist who lives and works in Washington, D.C. She received her Bachelor of Arts degree from The George Washington University in 2012. Her mixed media assemblages, installations, and videos investigate issues tied to the body, health, and gender.
