“Symbiosis” by Rachel Hubbard Kline
Based in Kansas City, Rachel Hubbard Kline’s work explores the wistfulness of personal connections to historical domestic objects and material culture. Hubbard Kline seeks “Symbiosis” in the relationship of surfaces to forms and addresses the hierarchy of importance between the form and the image or decoration.
Objects both functional and ornate, factor into the banality and mundane of daily life. As the current political and social climate continues to shift, Hubbard Kline seeks to compare past and present means of the production of goods and labor.
The vessel acts as a stand-in for the body and a metaphor for preservation. Hubbard Kline series of jars and jugs are intended to preserve memories of family members and places by using specific colors, patterns and objects she remembers from childhood to the present. By combining her work of fragmented tiles and vessels, Hubbard Kline bridges public and private space.
Surface design inspired by vintage textile prints from family quilts and other historical motifs appear in Hubbard Kline‘s work.
Hubbard Kline Incorporates quilt patterns that have been passed down to her by her grandmothers into the clay. This process allows Hubbard Kline to uphold memories and the larger history of the quilting tradition considered women’s work in the context of fine art.
In addition to her fine art career, Hubbard Kline is an art educator and artist in her hometown, Kansas City, MO.
Hubbard Kline has been the recipient of educator residencies at the Kansas City Art Institute, a participant in the Connecting Collections teacher institute in New York, and Educator Conferences and AP Teacher Training at the Savannah College of Art and Design. She earned a Master of Arts in Teaching from Park University in 2010, a Bachelor of Arts from the University of Connecticut in 2007, and attended Parsons School of Design. Hubbard Kline received her Master of Fine Arts in Studio Art at the Maryland Institute College of Art.
