Rachel Wyman’s Meditative Return to Her Most Natural State

Location: New York City
Summary
Dancing in the fields of Walla Walla and in the rooms of a Brooklyn psychiatric ward forces Rachel Wyman to reconsider a traditional path to dance movement therapy and inspires her new paintings, "Blue Pajamas."
In Spotlight:

"In my practice, I let the idea determine what voice it wants to take. I believe in cultivating ideas and finding the right expression in any and all artistic mediums. Sometimes I have an embodied idea, a sequence of movements that wants to emerge. Sometimes it’s visual. And sometimes, the visual and the movement combine. So that’s why I returned to Walla Walla for years, set my phone on a tripod, and created these pieces connecting visuals and movement to the land. I am quite attached to the land."
