Artist Bio

Rachel Citrino was born and educated in Philadelphia. Her studies include drawing, painting, and sculpture at Fleisher Art Memorial, The Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts, and The Clay Studio and Psychology at Temple University. Her studio is located in Philadelphia where she offers studio classes and workshops in drawing. Her workshops conducted in Italy offer independent explorations in personal artistic projects with opportunities to experience the sounds, sights and slow foods of the Abruzzi and Tuscany regions.

An autodidactic and independent artist who has had over fifty years of exhibitions, Citrino is affiliated with the Da Vinci Art Alliance, Tri-State Artists Equity, Philadelphia Sculptors, Vasto Writers and Artists Workshops and Mauro Corbani Studio Workshops in Scarlino. Her work has been included in Amici d’Italia collection at the National Museum in Warsaw and the Philadelphia Museum of Art Duchamp archives.

Gallery B102 is open by appointment.

Artist Statement

I work in a variety of mediums because life is too short for limits.

Color is the foundation of my practice in all mediums. In the wake of energized color the story emerges. My purpose has always been to convey that for which there are no words yet. To work the image to a heightened pitch of awareness never letting go of the passion and physicality of the materials and tools.

Using a ruling pen to draw the lines (black ink on white paper and white ink on black paper)…….drawing as if dragging the line along what seems its own chosen path……to intercept objects that are non-objects or elements that serve only to create ripples…..I want to bring the force of what is known and not known to the surface of the paper.
