Biography

Rachel Rossin (b. 1987, West Palm Beach, FL, USA) lives and works in New York, NY. Rossin uses both virtual reality and painting to investigate the slippage between the real and the digital. She combines Internet sources like video games and stock computer illustrations with objects from her real life such as a vase of flowers or a childhood drawing. The images in her paintings are further abstracted by computer programmes that twist the inherent meaning of these seductive Internet renderings; which are mostly geared toward garnering clicks and game plays.
