“Sometimes an artist’s through-line is immersion in the process––a constant state of existential free-fall.” -Sandy Sampson
Wolff Gallery is pleased to present Self-Portrait Party, a collection of self-portraits by Rachel Mulder that spans the past ten years. Working in a variety of mediums including illustration, etching, and human hair, Mulder’s work guides us through her self-reflective, and often playfully irreverent, journey as an artist.
“This show is a weird party on paper, featuring past, present, and future selves. Self-portraiture is a practice that emerges no matter what material or method I’m into since I’m stuck in this body and brain."
Rachel Mulder earned her BFA in Printmaking from the Milwaukee Institute of Art & Design and has since adapted those printmaking techniques and processes into other art forms, namely drawing. She works closely with local nonprofit Public Annex where she assists with their daily inclusive workshops and serves on the founding board as Social Media Director. She was born in the Midwest and lives and works in Portland, Oregon, with her two cats, Opal and Tomasina.
