Artist Rachel Burgess uses drawing and monotype to create iconic landscapes of Maine and Massachusetts that explore the connection between memory and storytelling. Burgess is fascinated by the discrepancy between what we see and how we remember it. “By editing, abstracting, printing and reversing my landscapes, I give physical form to the process we perform internally when we convert an experience into a memory. The results are images of places as seen through my mind’s eye, fabricated versions of real scenes.”
