Dylan Rose Rheingold
Dylan Rose Rheingold (b.1997) lives and works in New York City. She is currently pursuing an MFA from the School of Visual Arts in New York City and also holds a BFA in illustration from Syracuse University.
Her work deals with motifs surrounding various moments from her family archive and uses storytelling to create fictional subjects inspired by her memory and ancestral roots. Her work is a self reflection that fixates around mundane moments and scenes of everyday life in both private and public settings. As the eldest daughter of a first generation American, Japanese mother and a Jewish American father, she explores the idea of “otherness” in a dualistic and prideful manner. Her process involves the layering of acrylic, oil, china marker, pastel, charcoal, spray paint, marker and ink. Through the course of layering, she is able to connect aspects of both time and history in her subject matter.
