First Friday Artist Reception: Rachel Major

August 2 @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm


Meet the artist Rachel Major at Manna’s pop-up exhibition at Chromata Retail directly across the street from the gallery. Rachel Major’s current series involves both covering up and exposing. The paintings are made solely by dripping paint onto canvas. Major controls the placement of the drip only to give up that control and allow the paint to move on its own, allowing gravity and chance to dictate the path of the drips to create works that balance exposure and concealment, and convey both freedom and tension. Occasionally she coaxes the paint to move in a direction that exposes specific colors. In pursuing chance operations, Major’s paintings almost make themselves. A free flow is conjured, like rivers running or thoughts pouring out and connecting. This exhibition promises to be a compelling exploration of control, freedom and the hidden layers within her paintings.
