HAMBURG.- 14a is presenting Rachel Rossin’s first solo exhibition in Germany.

Rachel Rossin, who lives and works in New York, is a multimedia artist and self-taught programmer who works in painting, installation and virtual reality. In her work, Rossin draws together traditional art-making techniques, such as painting, with new technologies such as virtual reality and hologram projections to examine the slippage between the real and the digital, between perceptual and embodied space. Greasy Light presents a new body of work by the artist in which she refers to the smeariness of the quality of paint and color in translating space. Rossin applies thick and fleshy paint to the canvas with both an expressive and figurative gesture to highlight and describe the paint’s physical property. Rossin annotates the paint with hologram projections, a technology that is used for commercial signage and advertising. Suspended above the fleshy paintings, the recursive holographic annotations act as self-referential icons that express the virtual space that the paintings are made from. The conflation of the virtual and the real is further highlighted by the figurative elements in the paintings that are based on images of demons referencing daemons, a computer program that runs as a background process. By blending and twisting the inherent meaning of real life scenarios, video games and stock computer images, Rossin creates a space and a narrative that is neither virtual nor real but a fusion of the two. It gives the viewer a glimpse of how the digital fades more and more into our ‘real’ life raising the question of where reality lies. 

Rachel Rossin (b. 1987, Florida, USA. Lives and works in New York) selected solo exhibitions include Peak Performance, Signal Gallery, New York, 2017; My Little Green Leaf, Contemporary Art Centre, Riga, 2016; Lossy, Zieher Smith & Horton, New York, 2015. Selected group exhibitions include Chaos and Awe: Painting for the 21st Century, the Frist Center for the Visual Arts, Nashville, 2018; After Us, K11 Art Museum, Shanghai, 2017; ARS17, Kiasma Museum, Helsinki, 2017; First Look, co-presented by Rhizome, The New Museum, New York, 2017. She currently has a solo exhibition titled Stalking the Trace on view at the Zabludowicz Collection in London, UK and has a new commission for the Akron Art Museum, Akron, OH coming up later this year.
