New York, NY – Rachel received her BFA in Sculpture from the Kansas City Art Institute in 1999, and her MFA in Sculpture from Purchase College, State University of New York in 2001. She recently had several works represented in conjunction with the exhibition Hybrids & Other Sorts at BECA Gallery in New Orleans, was awarded ‘Best in Show’ in the exhibition Trans at Atlantic Works Gallery in Boston, received a fellowship from Skidmore College, and was an artist in residence at the Abrons Art Center of the Henry Street Settlement. Her work is included in several slide registries, including The Drawing Center, and has been featured in the second and third editions of Perfect8 Magazine, along with “Weekly Featured Art” of MYARTSPACE.com and the “Tips & Picks” section of NY Arts Magazine. Meuler’s work has encompassed sculpture and installation, costume-oriented performance art, and a recent focus on painting and works on paper. She consistently applies eccentric whimsy to the figure exploring issues of psychology, identity, evolution, and the dynamic relationship between the self and the other.
