Originally from the Chicago suburbs, Arielle Rebek is currently based in Oakland, CA. She earned a BA from Carleton College in Northfield, MN and an MFA in Art Studio from UC Davis. Rebek uses light as a material to make photographic gestures. She bypasses the camera to work directly with light sensitive material and physically contact the moment and subject of capture. Rebek considers the materiality and illusion of photography as she simultaneously explores the passing of time and memory of experience.
