Rachel Jutka Biography


„Rachel Jutkova works experimentally, over-lapping paint, graphics and photography, and exploring concepts of hyperreality and simulation... However, whatever the outcome, Jutkova is one of several young artists who represent a new generation questioning both how we frame ourselves and, how we are framed.“ text by Miina Eskola, 2021, (artist, writer and critic based in Helsinki, Finland)
