Rachelle Agundes’ creative practice has manifested from an exploration of the process of memory and how it becomes distorted through the steady passage of time. The paintings and mixed-media works depict compilations or collaged images from her environment, memories, family history, photographs and dreams—which are filtered through studio processes.
She uses materials and process-driven motifs to manipulate imagery into further realizations. The resulting distortions are a juxtaposing, overlapping, or stacking of space and time. This collaging of space and ideas allows time to fluctuate from past, present and future—much like one’s relationship to time in dreams.
