Rachael Zur’s expanded paintings blend sculptural physicality with traditional painting techniques to depict objects found in living rooms. Her work is twice published in New American Paintings, as well as Friend of the Artist, Under The Bridge Magazine, and Stay Home by Stay Home Gallery and Residency. After 12 years as a stay at home mom, Zur resumed her education and completed her MFA in 2019 from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. Since then she has exhibited her work throughout the United States, and has worked as a Program Mentor in the Low Residency MFA Program at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. In 2021, she drove her family of five across country in an RV to complete a residency at Stay Home Gallery while homeschooling her three children during their cross country camping adventure. Zur currently resides in the greater Portland Metropolitan area where she strives to set boundaries on when her kids can hang out in her studio.
