Rachel Brask is a painter from Rhode Island who has been hard at work with a goal of creating twelve paintings to take back home for her upcoming exhibitions throughout the state of Rhode Island in April. Her style of painting is abstract expressionist with impressionist tendencies. She uses a “drip effect” with stand oil to make it appear as if the viewer is looking at the scene through a window on a rainy day. This is Rachel’s first residency experience. She says that, for her, having the opportunity to get out and explore the local landscapes as well as spend countless hours in the studio and gain new ideas and directions from the other residents has been invaluable.
