Raychael Stine | Sea Change ( with Turner and Saturn 3)
oil and acrylic on canvas and postcard | 2013
Raychael Stine gives form to ideas and experiences of love, perception, and memory. Her self-described Yows and Jammers (quirky, bombastic dog portraits, both abstract and representational), Floaters (trompe l'oeil paintings of paintings that appear to hover) and Vision Paintings (abstract representations of distilled sensate experiences) are comprised of imagery that comes from the artist’s intimate experiences with dogs, hummingbirds, and rainbows.
Together these works present an empathetic consideration of the unavoidable eruptions and dissolves that occur between presumed opposites, allowing for the strength of spirit to embrace contradictions while creating space for energetic connectedness.
Raychael Stine holds a BFA from University of Texas at Dallas and an MFA from University of Illinois at Chicago. Stine has exhibited at Art Palace Gallery, Houston, TX; Eugene Binder, Marfa, TX; Rhona Hoffman, Chicago, IL; Common People, Brooklyn, NY; Denise Bibro Gallery, NY, NY; Road-Agent, Dallas, TX; Marty Walker, Dallas, TX; Leviton A + D Gallery, Chicago, IL, among others. Her work has been featured in New American Paintings Issues 120 and 78- as Juror’s Pick, The Texas Biennial, 2009, Next Project at Art Chicago 2010. She is a recipient of the Dallas Museum of Art Degoylier Grant, the Stone Award at UIC, and The Gendler Fellowship at the Bemis Center residency, and Jentel Foundation residency. Stine is currently Assistant Professor of Painting and Drawing at the University of New Mexico.
