Biography

Duality – abstraction and representation, the literal and the metaphorical, science and mysticism, the unseen and the seen – is a predominant theme in the work of Jody Rasch.  Based on electron microscopy, particle accelerators, radio astronomy and spectroscopy, his art is an expression of both the patterns of the natural world and the metaphors underlying modern science.   They allow us to see the beauty in the repulsive, to find knowledge in the unknown, and to observe the unseen to more clearly see our world.

The techniques used by Rasch are further expressions of duality.  Gold, rendered in images from science, echoes the gold halos of religious icons and fine, intricate lines are layered to interpret microscopic and subatomic images on a large scale and the galactic on a small scale.

According to the artist, “The images are meant to be perceived as abstractions, in which form and color stand on their own, as literal images of concrete reality, and as a challenge to see the unseen and make the unseen seen.”

Rasch is a New York-based artist and has studied at the Arts Students’ League of New York and The School of Visual Arts in NYC.

Rasch’s work has appeared in solo and group exhibitions at American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS), Washington, DC; Katonah Museum of Art, Artists' Association - Northern Westchester Hospital, Mount Kisco, NY; CONRAD New York Hotel, NYC; Sideshow Gallery, Brooklyn NY; Katonah Museum of Art, Artists' Association, Katonah NY; Rush Arts Gallery, NYC; Jackson Hall Art Gallery, NYC; Lana Santorelli Gallery, NYC; Columbia University, NYC; Space on White Gallery, NYC; Brenda Taylor Gallery, Verge, Miami, FL; Pfizer (Solo Show), NYC; Gallery Oms (Solo Show), Fort Lee, NJ; Upstream Gallery, Dobbs Ferry, NY; Mamaroneck Artists Guild, Mamaroneck, NY; Hank Baum Gallery, San Francisco, CA; Salon West 3, NYC; Salmagundi Club, NYC.
