About
Rachel Wolfe lives in Norway and works internationally on projects in public and private spaces. A recurring theme in her work reflects on how humans relate with nature, or the resonances of places. After studying a place and the experience of the elements there, water, terrain, texture, and movement are used to aesthetically convey the sensed qualities. Her images, installations, and mixed media works often offer a meditative quality. She has won numerous prizes and artist residencies, including 1st place by the jury for her monolithic image and text, “Omniscient,” in the Imaging New Eurasia exhibition in Gwangju, South Korea. Her work is held in private and public collections.
