Rachel Barnes is a Fiber artist who explores the interaction of textures and colors in her bright, vibrant work through rug tufting and latch hook techniques. A lover of all things soft and fluffy, her artwork can be experienced not only through sight but also touch, and with bold colors that make you feel good. With this background in the textile arts, she hopes to create a collection of wall tapestries this summer that explore concepts of Lexical gaps in the English language, or concepts that don't have a word for them in English, but in other languages are expressed more succinctly.
