Racheal Tycoles


Racheal Tycoles is a Winnipeg-based painter. In her art, Tycoles depicts the post-industrial landscape as a reflection of the romanticism of the past, the dystopia of the present and the search for the sublime. The landscape that once promised economic opportunity, orderliness and progress and was viewed as indestructible is now threatened and considered fragile. Former industrial sites are isolated and seen as voids in the landscape. It is these negative spaces resulting from purposeful human endeavours that she portrays. Her contribution to Show + Tell is a mixed media painting of the rail yards remembered from her youth in The Pas, Manitoba.
