Rachel Tribble’s award-winning artwork has captured a worldwide audience from corporations to private collectors. Her dream-like paintings are regarded as “heartfelt” and “esoteric” and are recognized for their meditative quality as emotional experiments in color and light.
Traditionally trained in fine art and design, Rachel took on work with a surrealistic edge in the early 90’s. Leaving the world of design, she moved into the alternative venues of rock nightclubs and the rise of techno. She produced visual and sound environments, performance art and multimedia installations that focused on esoteric, social and environmental issues.
In the late 90’s, Rachel took a hiatus from her life as a professional artist to live and work within the Native American community, where she entered an inspiring journey that took her deeper into the natural world.
Inspired by the world of the Anishinaabe and Lakota people, Rachel returned in 2003 to her familiar roots as a painter. She set forth on a body of work that redefined her ability to ask the viewer to look deeper within the art and, in turn, find peacefulness in the space.
Rachel continues to re-conceptualize her work, making it ever more hypnotic, interactive, motion-oriented and fun.
She has been featured in art books and national magazines, and her work has been gifted to nominees of the Academy Awards, the Emmy Awards, and the MTV Movie Awards. In 2008 her work for the Epcot International Flower and Garden Festival poster won the IFEA Gold Pinnacle Award for the Walt Disney Company. In 2009 she was awarded the Atlanta Design Center’s Visual Display Award. In 2012 and 2013 her work was in the Red Dot and Spectrum shows during Art Basel in Miami. This year she was invited to Disney World to participate in the Epcot International Festival of the Arts, where her surrealistic paintings on gilded paper sold out, and she’s participating in the 2017 Flower and Garden Festival at Epcot.
She continues to dedicate her work to peacefulness in the world and the celebration of Earth, Sky, and the multidimensional universes.
