Rachel Selekman

Scalloped Jewelled Wreath

36 7/8 x 38 1/4"


Brooklyn-based sculptor and collage artist Rachel Selekman mines high-quality printed materials for her nature-via-fine-jewelry approach. Her work radiates joy and familial love as part of a deep message. The process of making each of her works - sculpture or multimedia in two dimensions - is a labor-intensive exercise in physical effort to create works of exuberance, positive spirit, and examination of the stages of life. Sequined Garden is exceptional for the use of gold thread, sewn through the base paper. Each of Selekman’s works radiate light and the evidence of understanding and intelligence.
