REMNANTS features four new video works by Baltimore artist Robbie Rackleff. Produced by filming modelled lego structures and post-production animations, the videos depict a world long described in much of Rackleff's already hefty oeuvre. Landscapes riddled with tall ominous structures loom amongst fog and tall grasses that sway in a meticulous nature; all evidence of inhabitants remain in the remnant waste left behind. Rackleff focuses on the ambience of his apocalyptic universe in Remnants, but gives furthur articulation in his continued Occult Master saga.
Rackleff, a Baltimore- based multimedia artist, received his MFA from the Maryland Institute College of Art and is a member of the Wham City artist collective. His work has been screened and exhibited throughout North America and Europe.
