Feb 10 - 24

Rachel Rothberg (they/them) is a Washington-based artist. They use the natural world as inspiration for the body of work in their solo exhibition. Rothberg uses avian subjects to represent their respect for the biosphere, the damage of which often goes unnoticed by the masses.

The compositions Rothberg renders in oil or mixed media often appear funerary in the way the subject is arranged ceremoniously amongst other organic objects. The work shows regard for the tiny deceased subjects, paying homage to the life they lived. These small creatures, which we could hold in the palms of our hands, are scaled up to massive canvases, making it impossible for the viewer to avoid noticing them.
