Lorelle Rau is a contemporary collage artist, who uses cut paper and appropriated imagery to investigate concepts ranging from nature and place to random and personal first-hand experiences.
Lorelle Rau’s harmonious compositions piece together snippets of found paper and captured imagery to create graceful linear vistas and abstract scenes that coordinate color, texture, and shape with balanced intention. Her process is guided by an intuitive context, where the elements come together by adding and extracting forms and expertly bringing line and detail into play within the landscape.
Lorelle Rau earned an MA in Arts Administration from the Savannah College of Art and Design in 2015 and received a BS in Art Management and BA in Studio Art from Appalachian State University. She spent the last five years working for a corporate art consulting firm located in Richmond, Virginia, where she managed several healthcare and corporate projects. She enjoys hiking in the Boise Foothills and Idaho backcountry with her husband and dog, Tanner.
