„water is the most important element in my work, it holds the information for everything. it helps to connect with different worlds and dimensions, stories and sounds, also strengthens creativity and enhances intuition…“

 

Rachel Jag, a self-taught artist, currently based in Vienna, was born in Russia in 1985.
After graduating from Sigmund Freud high school Vienna, she has finished college for Print, Prepress and Media Technology at the „Graphische“ and worked as a Graphic Designer and Web Developer. At a young age, she was involved in various music projects as a singer and songwriter, and came to visual arts through listening to melodies that made a big impact on her. Since then, she explores the relation between color and sound, and has moved to the artistic field of visual arts.

 

„It’s never about what I want to see, it’s always about what is shown to me“

 

The essence of a short moment, a fragment of a composition or even a strangely familiar sound, may lead to a very deep artistic process. All created intuitive. To have trust, to let something „unlimited“ be seen, is often very challenging. Color is a tool, to shape forms, landscapes, rhythmic messages, and lets lighting become very dynamic. The communication between the artist and what is being created on paper opens up new, unknown doors and undiscovered fields. She questions the connection between different realities, like her source of inspiration, the finished work and her emotions.
