Rachel Eulena Williams has developed a unique visual language operating on the threshold of painting and sculpture. A powerful duality runs throughout Williams’ practice. It can be seen in the use of conventional materials to create works that both challenge and transcend genres; in the interplay between two- and three dimensions; in the contradiction between frugality and opulence (humble materials versus luminous color); not to mention the tension between optimism and sorrow (the joy of bricolage versus the social implications of cotton and rope). Williams’ working methods also relate to practices centered around community and sustainability, such as recuperation, recycling, patchwork and sewing, and the dichotomy between supposedly ‘high’ and ‘low’ artistic endeavors. Rachel Eulena Williams lives and works in Brooklyn, New York. She holds a BFA from Cooper Union for the Advancement of Science and Art, also in New York.
