Rachael Tarravechia

Rachael Tarravechia (b. 1995, UnitedStates) received a B.F.A. in painting from The Savannah College of Art andDesign, Savannah, Georgia in the spring of 2018. She has exhibited her work internationally in the United States, Hong Kong, and France. Her work investigates the threshold of private versus public, and aim to capture fleeting, intimate moments.  Moments where the room was just previously occupied, and now there are no people, no phones, no cameras, yet the aura of humanity still lingers. Tarravechia lives and works in Brooklyn, New York.  

Originally from Charlotte in North Carolina, Brooklyn-based Rachael Tarravechia pursued a BFA in painting from Savannah College of Art and Design. Post-graduation and she moved to New York to work as a studio assistant for various artists before eventually finding her feet in the industry and going out on her own. Now working as a full-time artist, Rachael has exhibited her works internationally across the US, Hong Kong and France, with a current show entitled Wish You Were Here held at LAUNCH F18 in the city. She's also currently represented by the female-run Tchotchke Gallery – with her second solo exhibition in New York taking place in January next year.

Rachael's creations are both bountiful and meticulous as they depict the intricate details of the home. However, these interior scenes appear slightly off; they're warped, weird and impossibly colourful. The bathroom tiles, towels and lipsticks are lined up in abundance as they're sprinkled with vibrancy, glitter, patterns, luxury goods and a surrealist sense of perspective. "I find a lot of my inspiration through viewing old homes – whether I'm physically in the space taking photos or looking through vintage Architectural Digest magazines from the '80s," she tells us. "I also draw inspiration from disco, love songs, horror moves and quirky little items in the dollar store."

-Ayla Angelos, "Rachael Tarravechia's paintings are uneasy, sinister and satisfying", Creative Boom (2021)
