Rachel Harrison

During the 1990s, Rachel Harrison developed an eclectic sculptural language in which abstract forms are juxtaposed with seemingly ignoble materials (jars of honey, aluminum cans) and peppered with pop-cultural references. The resulting works, which mix the seemingly incommensurate languages of Minimalism and Pop, are powerful both as three-dimensional structures and as assemblages of two-dimensional imagery.

Looking into Rachel Harrison’s work, I was fascinated by her weird sculptures and their relation to other objects. As as weird as it looked, they somehow manage to work together in the finished pieces. I think this showed me that effect of having more common being alongside an almost out of this world structure can somehow make it seem slightly more logical strangely.
