“Between Heaven & Earth” – a solo exhibition by Rachel English

Jul 12   •   6:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Square One Gallery is pleased to present “Between Heaven & Earth”, a solo exhibition by contemporary artist Rachel English. Join them for the opening reception event at our Central West End location Friday July 12 from 6-9 p.m.


Through concentration on the skies—celestial, stormy, and strange—Rachel English’s work embodies a perennial urge to gaze upward and grapple with ideas of existential meaning. A lifelong fascination with the fields of astronomy and physics sustains her painting technique, involving layers of oil color and brushwork to describe cosmic forms on canvas. Hand-painted stars, bolts of lightning, and cloudscapes are rendered with meticulous detail to evoke connections between the physical laws of nature and transcendent themes like morality and suffering, and to extend a mindful appreciation toward a universe that is much greater than ourselves.


“This body of work is about how the light in the skies impacts the human spirit. Our movements, moods, and sense of time and place are all shaped by atmospheric phenomena. On a spiritual level, their heavenly symbolism elevates our gaze to a great cosmos that we do not fully understand. Embracing this sense of awe is the aim of my studio practice and life in general, as it brings everything else about existence into harmony. ” – Rachel English
