First Friday Gallery Opening: Rachel Maxi

April 5 @ 5:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Cosmic Sculpture Garden

Rachel Maxi brings her paintings, sculpture, and assemblages to the VCA gallery.

Work included in this show spans the last several years and reflects on influences from residencies in Morocco and locations throughout the American West, and her subconscious memory of things ancient, futuristic, and multidimensional. Incorporating various materials including oil paint, beeswax, and gold leaf, her work fluctuates from flat to 3 dimensional. Paintings that look sculptural appear alongside assemblages and sculptures with richly textured and painted surfaces.

Rachel Maxi is a long time Seattle based artist working in painting, sculpture, and various media. She was born and raised in Cincinnati, Ohio, and came to Seattle after college in 1990. For about the first twenty years of her career, she identified as a representational painter of urban landscape and still life. During this time, she often described her approach as “the diary of the mundane”: a meditation on beautiful quiet moments captured through careful rendering, composition, and depiction of light. Her work has been shown in the Seattle and Tacoma Art Museums, and widely collected both publicly and privately.
