Rachel Owens references her past as a high end window dresser in sculptures that question ideas of consumption and merchandising with playfulness and profundity. Casting broken glass into casts (made from her own beautifully imperfect body as well as animals associated with the aristocracy), their sharp reality come into focus upon close inspection. Owens’s work has been exhibited internationally and nationally, including at the New Museum, New York and the Frist Center for Visual Arts in Nashville. “There’s an undeniable sweetness to Owens’s work, even when she tackles earnestly political subjects.” The New Yorker
Public commissions include the Krasnoyarsk Biennial in Russia, the Brooklyn Academy of Music, the New York City Parks Department, and the Austrian Cultural Forum, NY. undefined
