Rachel Meuler, born in Louisville, is a multidisciplinary artist working with drawing and painting, sculpture and installation, and costume-oriented performance art. She received her BFA in Sculpture from the Kansas City Art Institute in 1999, her MFA in Sculpture from SUNY Purchase in 2001, and has been living and working in New York City since.
Meuler has been an artist in residence at the Millay Colony for the Arts, Skidmore College, and the Abrons Art Center of the Henry Street Settlement. Her work is included in several slide registries, including the Drawing Center’s Viewing Program, was recently exhibited in a solo show at Rabbithole Gallery, and has been featured in Glasschord and Cultrehall Magazines.
Her work is informed by the fears and fantasies of contemporary culture. The specimen-like portraits and narratives of hybrid creatures speak to the painful beauty of individual struggle and evolutionary anomalies.
