BIO


Ray Reinsfelder is an artist from the dank marshes of Delaware whose odd paintings and drawings live like fever dreams in the consciousness of viewers.

Ray’s style diverges from traditional portraiture to bring mask-like faces sitting in surreal fantasy environments.

Her work resembles that weird dream you can’t quite shake or fully remember.

With a noxiously saturated palette she adds elements of high strangeness as symbolic stand-ins of the characters' altered psychological states suggesting deeply personal stories of very unusual situations and experiences.

Ray lives and works in the Brandywine valley of northern Delaware.
