Our Artists - Rachelle Wunderink

Rachelle Wunderink is an interdisciplinary artist originally from Niagara-on-the-Lake, Ontario, and is currently based in Hamilton. She attended a small private university in Michigan where she received her degree in Studio Art and has recently finished her Masters of Fine Arts at York University.

Her interests take her through a variety of motifs dealing with trauma, affect theory, and the femme experience. While traditionally a painter, her work recently diverges from this discipline, as she explores video and installation as a means to convey the affect of trauma through intersectional feminism.

Over the past 10 years she has co-founded two separate artist collectives working mostly abroad in Taipei, Taiwan and Grand Rapids, Michigan. She was featured in the Urban Institute of Contemporary Art's Jump- Off exhibition, Free Art Taipei through the Songshan Cultural Art Park and Young Art's Taipei with Archetype Gallery among other exhibitions.
