Rebecca Welz was born in Sausalito, California. She received her BFA from the Boston Museum School of Fine Art. Currently, she lives in New York and works as Adjunct Associate Professor at the Pratt Institute.

Beautifully skating on the brink of organic and planar, fluid and architectonic, Welz explores the exoskeletal qualities of suspended form. Materials permissive to light yield gentle, hand-painted color transmutations. The artist's work educes an amalgam of sensations, evoking the palpable texture and color of organic life, and the ephemeral nature of dreams and memories. Welz's sculptures utilize Plexiglas, painted and sanded to a translucent texture. The flat, rectilinear material is folded on a strip heater into curving forms, which are then connected with wire and fine steel cables that give the pieces some flexibility.


My sensibility is shaped in part by my experience of living in Japan... and witnessing the folk festivals in small towns with brightly colored banners and strung origami. The work relates to Buddhist rituals of writing a wish on a small piece of wood and hanging it on a temple wall and the placement of folded paper wishes on slender branches." -Rebecca Welz
