Rachael Senchoway's “Luminous Opera” reorders experience. Neons, glitter, and polka-dots gild references to Toulouse-Lautrec and Fragonard. Fantasy elements are synthesized through ambiguous time periods - frosted with decadence and kitsch, sprinkled with Victorian wigs and prissy Rococo faces. Rachael Senchoway seeks to free images from their historical confines, to re-contextualize and disorient dated themes. Senchoway wants her work to be unabashedly itself, no matter how fleeting.
