Raquel Rabinovich was born in Buenos Aires in 1929, and has lived and worked in the United States since 1967. She has been the recipient of numerous grants and awards, the 2011 Lee Krasner Award for Lifetime Achievement from The Pollock-Krasner Foundation among many others. She is included in the Oral History Program of the Smithsonian Institution Archives of American Art. For many years, working in a wide range of media, including drawing, collage, painting, sculpture and installation, Rabinovich has been investigating the ineffable nature of things, objects, and words. Her art has been informed by an underlying fascination with the concealed aspects of existence that we don’t see, or that seem to be invisible. Through the processes she explores, she tries to reveal how that which is concealed emerges into view. She tries to make the invisible visible. This paradox has been central to her art practice and is the essence of her artwork, now and for the last sixty years. She works in series and on many pieces at the same time. This is a slow process of unfolding, between intention and intuition, which in turn requires that the viewer experiences her work in a slowed down temporality.
