Artist Statement

 

I am fascinated by ‘the dark,’ that which is concealed beneath the surface of objects, words, thoughts, and the world. I am interested in what we don’t see, or that which seems to be invisible. I am captivated by the process of how something emerges into view from concealment. Working across mediums, this is the essence of my artwork, now, and for the last 50 years.

 

Artist Bio / CV

 

 

Raquel Rabinovich is a contemporary artist working in a wide variety of media, including drawing, collage, painting, sculpture and installation.  Born in Buenos Aires, she has lived and worked in the United States since 1967. Raquel has been the recipient of numerous grants and fellowships, most recently the 2011-12 Lee Krasner Award for Lifetime Achievement from The Pollock-Krasner Foundation.

 

Her recent and current work includes two ongoing series: Emergences and River Library. Emergences are site-specific stone sculpture installations constructed on the shores of the Hudson River that become concealed and revealed with the rising and falling of the river tides. River Library is a series of drawings made with sediment from rivers from around the world. Mud in these drawings embodies the history of the Earth and of humankind, functioning like a text that provides a trace, a memory of our existence.

 

The artist has been exhibiting in the Americas and Europe since 1953. Solo shows include those at the Fundación Alon in Buenos Aires, Argentina; Trans Hudson Gallery in New York, NY; Lehigh University Art Galleries in Bethlehem, PA; The Americas Society in New York, NY; Bronx Museum of the Arts in NY; Galería Garcés Velásquez in Bogotá, Colombia; Institute for Art and Urban Resources at P.S.1 in Long Island City, NY; as well as venues in England, Denmark, and Scotland. Rabinovich represented the U.S.A in the 10th International Cuenca Biennial in Ecuador in 2009.

 

Rabinovich’s artwork has been reviewed in the New York Times, Art in America, Arts Magazine, Cultura de la Argentina contemporánea, Arte Informa, Newsday, La Nación, and The Times (London), among others.
