Behind the Sky
The following document uses photographs of Chris Rackley’s artworks in progress, including pages from his sketchbooks, to give a glimpse into the meandering creative paths taken between ideas and forms. Six pieces from Behind the Sky, Rackley’s MFA thesis exhibition, January 2012, are featured: Walk-in Crater, The Edge of the Tideless Sea, Long Voyage, Latecomers to the Universe, Behind the Sky, and Beginning Cosmology. An essay and several short writings, all in Rackley’s own words, are included, revealing the core ideas and experiences around which Rackley builds his work.
