Rachel Maginnes

Rachel Maginnes  Balancer (detail)  2013  gesso, acrylic and ink on sanded feedback with drawn thread embroidery  44.5" x  38.5"

A lot of painters are experimenting with substrates in their work. Maginnes is a painter that borrows from her weaving and textile background. She uses existing fabrics such as feed sacks as well as weaving her own materials then paints, scrapes and sands the work until she finds resolution.
