Rachel Espenlaub is an oil and acrylic painter from Colorado Springs, CO. She creates non-objective scenes using hard lines and blocks of colors, primarily using repeating triangle arrangements to convey ideas of strength and determination.
"Structure and rules are the basis for my work. I’m interested in using color and shape to explore stages of movement and growth. Sharp, crisp edges add deﬁnition and emphasize orderliness. Rules and patterns create predictability and calmness, but are inevitably broken. I lean into my introverted personality that my environment and surroundings play a bigger role in my happiness than groups of people, and create these monumental orchestrated, architectural landscapes to bring a calm but exciting focus." - Rachel Espenlaub
