Sarah Shepard Gallery is pleased to announce its first solo exhibition with Bay Area abstract artist Rachel Kaye featuring 13 new drawings made this year while living with her family on the Hawaiian island of Molokai, a remote island 7 miles off the coast of Maui.
Kaye would sit daily at her kitchen table and draw, taking moments to stare out of the big corner window. While Kaye’s work has traditionally been a practice in meditation, this time it was outside of her normal studio environment looking toward new inspiration which has produced explosive color exploration and a deepened relationship with nature.
Rachel Kaye was born in 1981 and resides in San Francisco. She graduated with her BFA from California College of the Arts in San Francisco, CA. Kaye has exhibited nationally and internationally in Paris, Tokyo, San Francisco, Oakland, New York, Los Angeles & Palm Beach. Kaye has collaborated with her husband, artist Jay Nelson on exhibitions as well, blurring the line of artistic ownership and site specific sculpture. She has completed large scale murals in the Bay Area and her work has been featured in the Huffington Post, Refinery 29, Artsy, SF Gate & East Bay Express.
