Rachel Schultz is a New York City-based artist whose work spans various subject matters. Most often she explores the human psyche, capturing their essence and at the same moment constructing something all humans can relate to. Schultz is interested in juxtaposing color and subject matter; such as anxiety and mental health, which can be veiled, dark, and elusive with a lighter more buoyant palette.
Using the human figure to explore these psychological themes like anxiety, impulse, and relations between self and other Schultz walks the line between caution and impulse, resulting in poetic repetitive mark making and intuitive forms. In these select pieces, a series of related gestures unfold across subdued monochromatic paper. Drawn intuitively and in sequence, these forms can be read as the physical manifestations of human being's shifting emotional landscape and its effect on self and others. The result is a meditative blend of spare elegance and dynamic movement.
