Rachel Timmins

“Metamorphosis, mutation, otherness, comfort and building a place to belong are concepts that are prominently featured in my work and in how I choose to live my life.  Modification has changed the way that I see myself and the way the rest of the world responds to my appearance.  Many of my works include shiny surfaces, craft glitter and vibrant colors which are powerful ways of making a spectacle and showing preciousness.  Both the objects and the wearable pieces that I create allow both the viewer and the wearer to step into my place in this world.  I use both humor and irony in order to create a push-pull feeling between the viewer and the pieces.  In my current work, I try to show how our experiences can consume and change us into something that we never knew we could be.” – Artist’s Statement
