About Rachel Muldez and her work:
Rachel describes her current work as “nature collage.” Muldez collects materials from the natural world and reframes them either within larger installation patterns that sprawl across a gallery floor or in much smaller compositions that seem as though they could be a little niche for some small creature. Muldez notes, “The materials and objects that I make are always a visual reference to the larger ideas of existence as a continuum and the current expansion of our known universe.”
“The objects I collect end up in piles in my studio and await re-examination. It is not uncommon for me to observe and admire an object for years before I am aware of its full aesthetic potential. The sculptures that come out of this process resonate with evolving understanding of our world and the study of other worlds, galaxies, and nebulas.”
