About

This Land Was Made, 2019 acrylic on canvas 5 feet x 4 feet Signed on the back by the artist $2,000.00 The title was taken from the iconic American song, "This Land is Your Land." The American landscape has often been categorized as expansive, sublime, and extreme. In my painting the earth looks to be carved, formed, shaped with force and passion. I am mimicking the feeling you get when looking over a landscape of valleys, mountains, and archways. Artist Bio Born in Oregon in 1988, Brooklyn-based painter and curator Rachel Chaldu received her MFA in Painting and Drawing from Pratt Institute in 2016, and her BFA in Painting and Drawing from Southern Oregon University in 2014. In the fall of 2018 She attended the Vermont Studio Center. Recently, her work was shown in Fourth Street Show, New York. In the Summer of 2018, her work was shown in the group shows Allow Me To Reintroduce Myself and House Broke. Her work attempts to reclaim the landscape of her childhood growing up in the American West. Artist Statement I am interested in the complex history and narratives surrounding the construction of the American West. There is a longing for space in my work, and a desire to build a connection to the land. I am interested in the myths and folktales that come from the culture, religions, and history of spaces in the American West. I grew up in cowboy country—independence and rugged individualism are American myths that hold strong in the cultural heritage of my homeland. As a woman, I am looking for ways to reclaim these spaces for myself outside of the male dominated narrative of The West. I want to investigate the landscape on my own terms and recall the magic for myself. I am interested in the visual nuances that create the culture and myth of this landscape.
