Rachel Ostrow’s paintings use movement and light to explore space and form. They skirt the line between abstraction and representation. They are ambiguous, yet feel recognizable, familiar or iconic. By hinting at the identifiable yet remaining elusive, they use abstraction to be suggestive and to engage the viewer’s imagination. Ostrow’s process is physical, improvisational and playful. Ostrow paints with a squeegee, and unearths images by pushing around layers of transparent paint.

Rachel Ostrow (b. 1977) is a Brooklyn-based painter and printmaker. She earned a B.A. in fine arts from Wesleyan University, a post-baccalaureate degree from the Maryland Institute College of Art, and an M.F.A in painting from Hunter College. She has had solo exhibitions at 42 Social Club (Lyme, CT), Sunday Takeout (Brooklyn, NY), The Kenan Center (Lockport, NY), John Davis Gallery, (Hudson, NY), Saffron (Brooklyn, NY), Todojunto Gallery (Barcelona, Spain), and The Plant (Buffalo, NY). She has participated in group exhibitions in Brooklyn, Manhattan, Montreal, Dublin, Joshua Tree, CA and Great Barrington, MA.
