Rachel Grobstein was born in 1984 in Chicago, and is currently living and working in Brooklyn, NY. She graduated recently from the Rhode Island School of Design with an MFA in Painting with Honors, and also holds a BA cum laude in Visual Art and Philosophy from Bowdoin College in Brunswick, ME. Her work has been shown in solo and group exhibitions nationally. She is the recipient of a full fellowship and residency at the Vermont Studio Center, the Sitings Prize for a site-specific installation at the RISD Museum, a Montague International Travel Grant and a Graduate Fellowship. In her work, Grobstein explores invented taxonomies, suggesting the pathos of organizing knowledge into a legible system. Her low-relief installations of painted, cut paper straddle 2D and 3D worlds.
