Parker (Rachel Austin), thumbnail An exhibition of the artwork of Rachel Austin is taking place at Tilde, a store in Portland, Oregon, until the end of March. Austin’s work includes mixed media map paintings. “The map series are done with maps and layers of transparent paint on wood panels. They are each named after a location from the map used in the painting. They have a thick, waxy look. Super cute.” The end result is that the maps in the background, with a bokeh-like effect.
