Rachel Rossin‘s Peak Performance solo exhibition at New York’s Signal opened September 29 and is running to November 12.
The New York-based artist presented a series of new sculpture and paintings that look at “the disembodied consciousness in digital space” and the “seductive fantasy of a body freed from the limitations of anatomy and physics, the potential for abuse or disfigurement, and the inevitability of entropic deterioration.”
Working across mediums, Rossin uses a number of materials, including oil painting that mimics a virtual environment, aquariums with computers suspended in oil, melted plexiglass and more. Attracted to the practice of plein air painting or “fragments of imaginary topographies populated with fragmented bodies,” the Rossin’s works play with sensory aspects of light, mutation, physical form and moulding to explore an incomprehensible ecosystem.**
