About the artist: Rachel Teannalach is a contemporary landscape painter based in Boise, Idaho. Originally from northern New Mexico, she has also painted extensively in northern California. Her traveling pack has taken her from Marin County to Iceland and many places between.
Teannalach is known especially for her "tinyExpanse" daily paintings as well as her large-scale landscapes, which are characterized by bold brush strokes and reduction of detail to distill the essence of a landscape.
Teannalach's focus over the last several years has been collaborations with conservation organizations, supporting their efforts to preserve the lands she loves to paint.
Her work is guided by the belief that the observation of nature revives our recognition of beauty and restores our sense of belonging in the natural world. For Teannalach, painting provides a way to step out of the frenzy that life so easily becomes, to appreciate both stillness and the beauty of passing time. Her work inspires viewers to leave, in W.B. Yeats’ words, “a little space for the rose-breath to fill.”
