Exhibit Overview
Beverly Acha is a RAiR fellow whose paintings engage technology, science, nature, the cosmos, and human experience. Acha describes her work in the following quote:

"My paintings arise from a desire to connect with my own physicality. When I paint, I connect to a non-verbal, sensory understanding of my experience. The materiality of paint, surfaces I prepare, and haptic memories feed my process...I aim for the materiality of my work and its forms to activate the viewer's senses and to engage their awareness of nature, space, time, and scale."
