Rachel Eng depicts geology’s change, decay, and regeneration over time in Debris, a new, unfired clay installation. Commenting on life cycles and the impact natural elements and humans have on the environment, Eng demonstrates how we can understand our future by studying the planet’s past.
Eng grew up exploring the deciduous forests of Rochester, New York. This inspired her work which grapples with environmental concepts such as climate change, land use, and development, and how each can be connected to memory. Eng received her B.F.A. from the Pennsylvania State University and her M.F.A. from the University of Colorado at Boulder. She has completed several artist residencies, both national and international, and was selected as the National Council on Education for the Ceramic Arts Emerging Artist in 2017. She currently works and lives in Carlisle, PA with her family and teaches in the studio art program at Dickinson College.
