Frequently returning to the shifting landscape and wooded hills of the fruit farm where she spent her childhood, Raphael’s drawings and paintings are the reflection of an endlessly changing combination of observation, memory, and visual references. Raphael’s interest in the condensed clarity and powerful, atmospheric qualities of early Renaissance painting is fused with her own intuitive responses the visual tensions within familiar structures and landscapes.
