Shape and Place looks at form, structure, and pattern. Object and image form within and outside of a system they both construct and deconstruct. It is a formal investigation that indulges ideas of belonging and place.
Rachael Wong investigates systems and form to explore her contemporary context. Rachael holds a BFA in Glass from Alberta College of Art and Design and an MFA in Sculpture/Dimensional Studies from Alfred University. She was the recipient of the 2010 RBC Award for Glass and her work is included in the collections of the Canadian Clay and Glass Gallery and the City of Lommel, Belgium. Working through installation, drawing, and material, she studies process and structure, while questioning aspects of her surroundings. Born in Glasgow, Scotland, Rachael moved to Canada at a young age. With a Scottish mother and a Guyanese father with mixed roots, she grew up mostly in Calgary, Alberta. Rachael currently lives in Toronto with her husband and young son.
