About

Abstract, Painting, Acrylic on Canvas

Rachel Albano is an abstract painter from Elora, Ontario. Her painting is an intuitive process; multiple layers are covered and revealed until they culminate in a cohesive piece that testifies to this process. Her work has a sense of the artist’s presence through gestural marks and sometimes a heavy scraping back of layers. The use of palette knives creates a sense of rawness and authenticity- rough, textural marks combined with watery, ephemeral drips that invite an element of chance into the work. Albano’s aim is to create paintings that facilitate a sense of inspiration to her viewers. Her work is vibrant, energetic and compelling.

Rachel was educated at the University of Guelph with a Bachelor of Arts Honours in Studio Art and Art History.

Elora Fergus Studio Tour

EVER WONDER WHAT AN ARTIST’S STUDIO REALLY LOOKS LIKE?

Here’s your chance to get a look behind the scenes. Take a self-guided tour and meet artists where they live and work. Many artists and craftspeople will open their studios for two consecutive fall weekends.

The Studio Tour is completely free of charge. You’ll get a chance to meet directly with the artists, and often see work not shown in gallery settings. You’ll visit the working spaces of both established and emerging artists, from basements to self contained studios
