Elora Fergus Studio Tour - Rachel Albano - Abstract, Painting, Acrylic on Canvas
Date and time
Elora Centre for The Arts
75 Melville Street
Offered in English.
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.
