RACHEL LEBO Side A
oil on canvas
I am Rachel, but sometimes I find it more informative and effective to be someone else. Most of my practice is an exploration into characters. Some are short story characters written by authors, like A.M. Homes, Carmen Maria Machado, Margaret Atwood, Mary Gaitskill, ZZ Packer, Lucia Berlin, and so many more. Some are the characters that I have developed from the women in my life - friends, mentors, and family - and the sensationalized myths that I have created around them. I step into these characters and make work through their lens. There are many themes that these characters explore - becoming/unbecoming, exchanges of power, vulnerability, disguise - all thinly veiled ways of understanding myself and others.
