Beautiful, brilliant and brimming with enough energy to keep going another 28 000 years. In many ways, the works of Brooklyn-based Rachael Tarravechia
are the perfect distillation of what we love most about New York. This becomes even more apparent in the context of the New York Isn’t F*cking Dead
exhibition, at the Tchotchke Gallery
, which shows what it says on the tin. However, this is but one facet of Rachael Tarravechia. Today, we chat with the artist about living in New York, bedazzling paintings, and collecting precious rocks.
