Rachel English Walter is a visual artist working in Dallas, Texas. Best known for her large-scale oil paintings of vividly detailed celestial skies, she developed her technique in light of a deep fascination with the intersection of cosmology, physics, and philosophy. Her work has been shown and collected throughout the United States and abroad, kindling curiosity and meaningful exploration among an extensive audience.
“To study the universe is to study ourselves, including all the nuances that connect abstract traits like kindness and grief to the physical laws of lightspeed and gravity. Echoing that idea, my work aims to awaken the human spirit, empowering our small part in the extraordinary design of the cosmos.” - RW Artist Statement
