RACHEL ROSSIN
b. 1987. Lives and Works in New York City
Rachel Rossin is a New York-based multi-media and installation artist whose practice aims to define new experiences regarding transcendence and perception. By synthesizing traditional art-making techniques with new technology, she examines the boundary between the hyper-real and imaginary, between perceptual and embodied space. Rossin composes arrangements within her installations and paintings to symbolize the subdivision of time and memory in order to distill the larger themes of the broader human experience.
