ABOUT THE WORK
My collage practice incorporates aspects of printmaking, drawing, painting, and digital media. I begin by generating my own collage material like monotype prints or paintings which are destroyed throughout the creative process by being ripped or cut apart. These initial compositions are inspired by intuitive mark making, experimentation, and play. Prints, drawings, and paintings are repurposed as raw material and treated like building blocks for larger collages as they are torn and cut apart into new puzzle-like pieces. Once I have substance to work with, I arrange pieces of collage papers by continuously moving and organizing elements until a composition feels complete. I try multiple combinations of cut-outs and reposition materials, lines, and textures while discovering relationships between negative and positive space. Layers are built, shapes are uncovered, and solutions to compositions emerge.
Abstraction characterizes my language as a visual artist and reflects my patterns of thinking and making. I use collage to build connections between styles of mark making and to react to a variety of formal elements and mediums. I embrace the immediacy of collage processes and value that they can produce results quickly. My subject matter is often influenced by simple shapes, patterns, marks, and text. Similar to the surrealists and dadists, I am interested in exploring the unconscious by creating intuitively and without limitations or expectations. The results are black and white collages that express balance and reflect the “pieces falling into place.” By trusting my instincts and relinquishing control, I am able to organize visual data with collage techniques and communicate the power of automatic thought and the subconscious through abstract means.
ABOUT THE ARTIST
Rachel Hausmann Schall is a born and raised midwestern artist, writer, and educator living and working in central Wisconsin.

Her work takes shape in many forms, although currently, she is interested in exploring text, language, and mark-making through written and visual mediums like collage, painting, sculpture, and printmaking. Hausmann Schall is one of the co-organizers of the emerging artist grant and exhibition program The Grilled Cheese Grant. In addition to her practice as an artist, Rachel is a contributing writer for both the Chicago-based arts publication Sixty Inches From Center and the Wisconsin-based publication Artdose Magazine.
