Rachelle W. Chuang's mixed media panels explore dynamic color combinations through the medium of letterpress printing and collage. "My work is the result of experimentation and chance using four things that I love: paper, print, collage and color." Full sheets of heavyweight paper are uniquely printed from antique wood type, cut into strips and collaged on wood panels. Thick layers of epoxy resin are used to coat each work, resulting in brilliant, lively colors that show natural mark making from relief printing as well as overprinted color shapes. Classic color theories as well as playful printing influence each unique piece, saturating the viewer's field of vision with an intense color experience.
