About the artist

Rachel Nelson is a self-taught artist, curator, and political economist who is based in Brooklyn, New York. Her Paintings, while criticizing capitalism and its contribution to almost every social ill, display how she grapples with her own personal relationship with consumption. Finding herself drawn to the packaging, and the overall idea of more, her art then, is a push and pull between desire and nature, and aims to show the complex relationship between comprehending a problem and also being complicit in perpetuating it.

The subject matter, usually homes, household products, and a near obsession with products that simulate suburban normalcy, offers a humorous but cynical and dystopian outlook on the present and future state of human and political affairs. She uses neon colors, flowers, pop culture absurdism, and advertisements to portray the human condition.
