Rae Broyles


My work is an investigation of balance, empathy and open mindedness. As a woman, I feel our own contemporary empowerment can paradoxically detach us from the love and security we so desire. Keeping a balance has been an important struggle for me and one which I have found peace by creating serene beauty to guide my daily thoughts.

Uniquely, I have also developed works combining video, painting, music, choreography and/or poetry. Using all these disciplines helps me to express how life is beautiful, strange and complex and it takes many dimensions to fully express it.
