I don’t think I’m a process painter, but I’m sure I am an emotional painter. Art grounds me. What I hope comes through is my curiosity, my search and my joy. I feel my art helps me connect my spiritual world to the physical world. It feels like a meditative state. I try to channel something which for sure is not just my everyday life. I don’t even know if I’m trying or it is just happening. But it’s a good enough reason for me to keep doing it.
Rachel Volpone attributes a long ago trip to Italy that ignited a passion for all things visual. Continuing to formulate an imagistic vocabulary and an evolving body of work has been a motivating influence in all her artistic endeavors. Rachel has a BFA from Syracuse University, and currently lives and works in CT.
