Rachel Brask is a Rhode Island abstract expressionist oil-painter with impressionist tendencies. Her current work explores the sensation of looking through windows during torrential rain, observing the texture and blurring colors distorted by the rain as it drips down a window pane. Through these “Abstracted Rainy Moments” paintings, Brask seeks to show people a fresh perspective on rainy days. She has exhibited in solo exhibitions, juried, and invitational shows around New England and in Italy and the UK. She has been accepted to art residencies at the Golden Apple Art Residency and Castle Hill Center for the Arts Truro’s Edgewood Farm. She received “Best in Show” for the “Autumn Rain” painting that started this whole rainy art journey.
Rachel is an active member of the Rhode Island art community, serving on Art League Rhode Island’s Board of Directors as Communications Chair, in addition to being an active member of the Pawtucket Arts Collaborative, Seekonk Artist Network, and East Providence Arts Council. Rachel earned a B.A. in Art from Houghton College, with concentrations in painting, graphic design and photography. When she is not working on a new painting in her studio, she is working on graphic designs for nonprofit and small business clients. She is passionate about sharing the art process with others through teaching private and public art classes, painting commissions, and exhibitions. She resides just outside Providence, RI with her husband, Peter. She enjoys drinking tea and finding any excuse to use puns and alliteration her daily life.
Rachel creates original oil paintings, teaches art lessons, and is currently accepting commissions for paintings.
