April 2003: Rachael Chenven Powers

Rachael Chenven Powers will be presenting mixed media constructions. Nearly all of her pieces take the form of boxes loosely inspired by reliquaries and mezuzahs. Some of her boxes are found and modified, others constructed or carved. The boxes serve as a personal form of compartmentalization and reorganization and examination. The box becomes an incorporated frame or simply a beautiful object in and of itself, though each box provides a contained context.
