An article about me came out this morning in the Valley Voice, in the Spokesman Review Newspaper. It comes out in the Spokane area Spokesman Review next Thursday.
Here’s a quote:
She began showing her work in Western Washington and locally at the Hutton Building and at Raw Space. Over a year ago, her husband, Heath’s, work brought them to Spokane. They settled in Nine Mile, where Rasche has a room in which she paints as often as she can, like during nap time (her son is 2.) She said that having less time to paint actually helps her focus. “Painting is a back-and-forth process for me. While painting, I go back and forth, purposefully, between painting thoughtfully and deliberately, and then painting intuitively, just feeling and expressively painting. I define objects and details, and then make broad ambiguous, gestural strokes, obliterating details.”
Her style is representational and impressionistic and her subjects range from landscapes to figurative to still-life. She likes to illustrate an image or emotion with patterns and gestures, many brush strokes that add up to a finished piece. When you step close to one of her paintings, you can see deliberate strokes of color, and when you step back, the colors blend and become whole, encompassing a viewer with a moment of beauty.
