Rachel Libeskind was educated in Berlin and New York and completed her B.A. at Harvard in 2011. She is a pioneer in the fields of collage, drawing, painting and video. Libeskind draws on a database of images encompassing fine art, socialist propaganda and historical tomes, clips from pop culture, and retro porn. By cutting up and manipulating these images in her work, Libeskind distorts and interrupts their obvious symbolism. Feeding instead on abstraction, shape, color and composition, she recapitulates a radical version of history through collage and paint.
