Focus on: Rachel Gordon
Rachel Gordon is a self-taught artist who has found expression through photography, fiber art, conceptual art and installation, performance, illustration, and printing. Her art encourages people to stop and see the beauty and wonder in everyday life and open themselves to different perspectives. She is fascinated by the interplay of outer appearance and inner self and how much we judge and make assumptions based on appearance – and wonders what the world would be like if more people were able to love and accept themselves and celebrate difference on an individual as well as group level.
'Difference' has been an overriding theme in her life, both on the side of being different and on the side of advocating for those seen as different. She has traveled, performed, and lived among different cultures and lived and worked with people of different physical and intellectual abilities.
