Rachel Mindrup

Rachel Mindrup is a professional artist and art educator. She studied at the University of Nebraska-Kearney; the Art Academy of Los Angeles; and the Art Institute of Boston, where she received her master of fine arts degree.  Her current painting practice is about the study of the figure and portraiture in contemporary art and its relation to medicine.

The Many Faces of NF

The art object and human subject oscillation, represented so personally, is what gives portraits their powerful grasp on my imagination. It is the idea of duration - or earthly immortality - that gives such a mysterious interest to the painted portrait. Studying the history of portraiture techniques has allowed me the ability to begin to integrate those concepts into relevant contemporary narratives.

My son Henry has been the motivation behind my series of portraits "Many Faces of Neurofibromatosis (NF)". Through this series of paintings, I am the conduit, transforming genetic complications into something secondary and portraying the individual personalities first. Using social media as a connection, I hope to raise funds, educate, and ideally find a cure for NF.

Mindrup's client list includes: Kiewit Corporation, Boys Town, Creighton University, Boys Town National Research Hospital, and the Kansas City University of Medicine and Biosciences. Her artwork is held in many private collections including those of primatologist Jane Goodall and Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas. To view more of her work, please visit: www.rmindrup.com
