"In her contribution, Rachel Hellmann departs from the works on paper and shaped-wood paintings the Terre Haute artist has become known for. In Slide By (2020), Hellmann’s origami-inspired geometric abstractions are produced on a ground of cut aluminum that appears to float from the wall. The work’s vibrant colors coupled with its irregular edges create playful illusions of depth, complimented by a subtle glow of green emanating from behind."

So pleased to have my work added to the wonderful collection at Cleary Gottlieb in Washington DC.
"Presented in ZONAMACO Sur, a section curated by Juan Canela to reflect the expanding movement of the historical narratives in art that have flourished over the last millennium, Rachel Hellmann’s colorful and geometric paintings on paper deal with the perceived and actual space."
