My work reflects nature’s palpable qualities. Emotion mingles with pigment and sensation until the echo of a place remains on my surface. Though my works are based on a visceral presence at specific locations, my aim is to elude the literal to render nature as felt, walked through, breathed in, and condensed.

Bio
As a native of Maine, Rachael Eastman graduated with honors from Maine College of Art, where she worked with Johnnie Winona Ross, Ed Douglas, and Honour Mack. She later attended Vermont Studio Center, working with Wolf Kahn and Lois Dodd, as well as conducting independent studies in Paris, London, and The Barre Center for Buddhist Studies. Meditation and Eastern philosophy have now merged with perennial influences (J.M.W. Turner and Mark Rothko), as Eastman’s passion for color and light have met the Maine coastline.
