Rachelle Mozman Solano
Rachelle Mozman Solano works between New York and Panama the country of her maternal family. Starting often from her biography and family history Mozman Solano explores how culture shapes individuals, how environment conditions behavior. Her work is concerned with the intersection of mythology, history, economics, and the psyche through photographs and films that confound fact and fictional narrative. In her work narrative is explored as inherent to our humanity and shaped by perception. Mozman Solano's art is deeply informed by her clinical work in psychoanalysis
