Exploring the tension between structure and space, geometry and randomness. Wren creates paintings in which form and air mingle with each other. the dense atmosphere of the paintings is built up through an accumulation of small marks and subtle changes in color and value. these discrete, individual marks, each with a defined edge, work together to create a luminous haze.Wrens small-scale paintings emerge from a grid of pastel hued pixel-like forms, hovering between architecture and atmosphere. http://www.rachaelwren.com/resume.html
