American artist Rachel Tribble’s award winning dream-like paintings are recognized for their meditative quality as experiments in color and light.
Traditionally trained in fine art at both Syracuse University and The National Academy of Design in New York. Rachel had a brief career in jewelry design and then her work took on a more surrealistic edge .
Leaving the world of design behind she moved into the alternative venues of rock nightclubs and the rise of techno. She produced visual and sound environments, performance art and multi-media installations that focused on the esoteric, social, and environmental issues.
Then Rachel’s career took a turn from her life as a professional artist as she went to live and work within the Native American community. There she entered an inspiring journey that took her deeper into the natural world.
In the early 2000s propelled by the teachings of the Aninshenabe and Lakota people; she set forth on a body of work that would redefine her ability to ask the viewer to look deeper into the hidden layers of color within the work. And in turn, find peacefulness in the space.
Since then Rachel’s work has been featured in galleries, shown at the Miami Art Week Fairs, in art books, national magazines, gifted to nominees of the Academy Awards, the Emmy Awards, and the MTV Movie Awards, and at EPCOT at Walt Disney World. In 2008, her work for the EPCOT International Flower and Garden Festival poster won the IFEA Gold Pinnacle Award for the Walt Disney Company. She has also been awarded the Atlanta Design Center’s Visual Display Award and continues to be a participating artist in the EPCOT International Festival of the Arts and the Flower and Garden Festival at Walt Disney World.
"Although there is a conspicuous ebullience to Tribble’s artwork, the matter of fact is that many of her pieces dive into layers of our existence that aren’t quite apparent. Tribble’s devotion to meditating, this serenity in nature that she keeps in her everyday, makes a huge mark on the way that she crafts her artwork. The reflection doesn’t end with an idea to create– it seeps onto the page, this post meditative ponder, etching Tribble’s ideology onto the canvas”. ~Huffington Post
“With my art, my mission is to bring some light into the world. Peaceful silliness, that is where I am. Sometimes my art is calm and sometimes its just funny." ~ rachel tribble
