More About Rachael Jablo

Question IconWhat inspires you?

The structure of flowers, color, space.

Question IconDescribe your creative process.

In the darkroom, I tear flowers apart hat are meaningful to me, things that were in gardens I grew up in, or have other personal symbolism to me. I break them down into their elements, and make color photograms of the petals. In the studio, I cut these prints out piece by piece, following the petal structures on the page, so that I start with the “cells” to build structures from. I then glue these 'cells' together to create artworks both installation works and small collages.

Question IconWhat are 3 words that best describe your work?

Colorful, intricate, thoughtful.

Question IconWhat is the most important tool when creating your work?

Sharp blades, tiny brushes, and a darkroom.
