Rachael Gorchov’s photographs present mixed media environments of colored light, paintings on paper, drawings, and clay forms. Based on European synagogues, these layered and moody spaces allow pictorial space to shift ambiguously in a tondo format. Recently Gorchov, a painter whose work spans a variety of media, mounted a solo exhibition of ceramics at Owen James Gallery in Brooklyn and a two-person exhibition at Simuvac Projects in Brooklyn. She has also exhibited at Im Ersten in Vienna and The Brooklyn Academy of Music (BAM). Her work and curatorial projects have been featured in Hyperallergic, the Philadelphia Inquirer, and the Temple Review. She is a founding member of Tiger Strikes Asteroid New York, full time faculty at the Art Institute of Pittsburgh-Online Division, and adjunct faculty at Fairfield University. Gorchov received her BFA from Tyler School of Art, Temple University and her MFA from Hunter College, City University of New York. Originally from Philadelphia, Rachael lives and works in New York City.
