Working in traditional mediums such as oil paint, gouache, and chalk pastel, Rachel Gregor creates alluring paintings of young women that straddle the line between pastoral realism and contemporary surrealism. Her figures seem caught in a single moment between the mundane and the melodramatic—wide-eyed, wistful, and frozen in a state somewhere between boredom and shock. These subjects often find themselves surrounded by mid-century floral patterns and crocheted blankets, suggesting a timeless sense of domesticity. Accompanying her figurative works are landscape scenes and still-life compositions that explore both the extravagant and the quotidian. Images of garden cultivars and native wildflowers regularly populate these and other artwork.
