Raquel Albarran (b. 1987) is a Puerto Rican born artist living and working in Brooklyn, New York. Preoccupied with toes, noses, and encapsulated forms, Albarran’s art is full of juxtapositions and playful explorations of life, illness, and objects begging to be squeezed. Albarran's drawings and sculptures reflect her delight sense of mischief, humor, and energy. Albarran describes the fantastical and sometimes bizarre pairings in her work are as an endearing “mix of light and dark”. She warns viewers that there will be “a lot of amputations going on” in her upcoming exhibitions.
