Rachel Lord is an artist living and working in Los Angeles. Her most recent solo show, Safeworld, at The Composing Rooms in Berlin;  featured large format black and white paintings that depicted the gray area between scientific and spiritual discourse, historical speculation and global psyops.

At Varda Artists Residency, she has been exploring numeral and it’s relation to numerology as well as sketching ideas for a cycle of dances about failure she will present upon her return in the winter.
