Rachel Marks

Rachel Marks is an American artist, performer and dancer living and working in Paris.

Her background in dancing with the Oklahoma City Ballet transposes into her performances, using dance as an artistic medium in her work. She has a Bachelor of Fine Art (2010) in Drawing and Painting from Oklahoma State University and a Master of Fine Art (2013) from l’Ecole Supérieure d’Art et Design of Grenoble, France. Rachel’s work looks at the relationship between nature and language. She investigates how a natural community communicates together through her installations, performance, sculpture, paintings and drawings. She questions the relationship between humanity and nature through either integrating herself or the viewer into the natural environments she encounters or creates. Her main focus is on the forest: plant and tree life as well as their interaction with insects. Rachel works like a biologist, collecting and investigating nature, experimenting and finally presenting her findings through her work. Her goal as an artist is to bring public awareness to nature’s complexity and beauty in order to promote preservation.

Her works and performances are regularly shown in France as well as internationally. Children’s Museum of the Arts in New York, The Night of the Museums – Musée de la Chasse et de la Nature in Paris, Spring Break Art Show in New York, Imagine Science Film Festival-National Sawdust in New York, Gallery U10 in Belgrade, The Grand Palais in Paris, Instituto Municipal de Arte y Cultura in Tijuana, Gallery Gong in Seoul, SMOArts Bay Gallery in San Francisco, Untitled Space in New York, Bastille Design Center in Paris…
