Rae Red encourages laughter in the face of darkness by translating everyday realities into playful performances. Their work exposes the magic and wonder within our daily functions, from the wizardry of sight and color theory, to the way water invisibly keeps our lives flowing smoothly like a ghost within the walls. They explore subjects that are universal like blood pumping through veins, while bringing light to the small deaths that reoccur continuously around us. They have presented their work in every type of space imaginable from dive bars, the and the backs of donut shops to The Museum of Human Achievement, High Concept Labs, and The Santa Cruz Museum of Art and History. They are an art educator, tarot reader, and yoga teacher, and have a BA from Bard College, and MFA from Towson University, and are currently a Shelter Elsewhere Fellow.
