Rachel Ahava Rosenfeld
Rachel Ahava Rosenfeld is an oil painter living in Chicago. She has pursued her passion for oil painting through study at the Jerusalem Studio School, and research in Germany, Italy, France and Ireland. Her work investigates the interactions of memory, history, perception, and nostalgia. These pursuits primarily manifest through the collection of photographs from individuals of varying backgrounds, which commingle and interact in Rosenfeld's canvas to create a new, fictional narrative that the unknown viewer may plausibly accept as a true representation of the past.
