Rachel Bomze, a painter originally from Texas, received her bachelor’s degree in Studio Art with an emphasis in Painting at Brandeis University, and her Master’s of Fine Arts in Painting from Tyler School of Art at Temple University.
Rachel is involved in drawing, painting and printmaking. Her work centers on the in-between spaces. This occurs in the work where imagery hovers between the process of painting itself and a recollection of an image. In those in-between places, sometimes the work is reminiscent of weaving. Many times the work recalls a landscape quality, like the light reflecting across the ripples in a body of water, or the sensation of being enveloped by a landscape space as if in a field or underwater.
Rachel’s work has been exhibited throughout the Pennsylvania and Southern New Jersey region, as well as in New York City. She currently teaches drawing, painting and art appreciation in Flagstaff, AZ, where she is a Lecturer at Northern Arizona University.
