Edition of 30 + 5 AP, signed and numbered on back
For her new edition for Spike, Rachel Rose (*1986, USA) catches a shimmering moment of metamorphosis between two egg-shaped objects – blown glass and rock – both formed out of sand. She used pigments, oils, and water to create a darkly abstract egg, emblazoned in dazzling black and white, that appears like an x-ray or early era photograph, glowing with the fiery rays of creation.
Solo exhibitions of her work have taken place at Lafayette Anticipations, Paris (2020), Fridericianum, Kassel (2019), Philadelphia Museum of Art (2018). Rachel Rose lives in New York.
