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.
In her recent landscape series, Rau expresses the transformative qualities of nature, particularly the rich contours and textures of the mountains. As an avid hiker and camper, the experience and rawness of the natural world has always been an integral part of her creative process.
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.
