Renowned for her dark, intimate portraits, Arizona artist Rachel Bess incorporates classical techniques to realistically capture the likeness and complex narratives of her subjects. In her paintings, Bess employs dramatic lighting and conveys a nuanced mood that reflects her lifelong fascination with impermanence. Her latest body of work represents the balance between being in control and letting go while pursuing an underlying drive for adventure and change.
