Rachel’s current exhibit “Egyptian Deities & Pop Culture Icons” is a fundraising event for “City of Hope” cancer research foundation
Rachel was inspired by her love of Ancient Egypt, and her most recent exposure to the magnificent “King Tut Exhibit” at the California Science Center this past year.
Nefertiti, the most beautiful Egyptian queen and Great Royal wife of Akhenaten, were recognized for creating a religious revolution, in which they inspired all to worship one god only “Aten” the sun god. They were 1300 years ahead of Christianity and Judaism.
Nefertiti became a global icon of feminine beauty and power
Rachel Ganz’s sophisticated mixed media use of gold acrylic paint, nail polish, and high gloss varnish emphasize Nefertiti’s exquisite beauty.
Betty Boop, the starlet of her” Pop Culture Icon” collection is more than a Jazz age 1934 flapper. Rachels’ Betty Boop, with her big-lashed flirty eyes and petite cute body, is a very savvy, sophisticated and confident woman.
Rachel Ganz’s bold use of bright colors, striking design, thick paint, high glosses bring the characters to life with their soulful eyes and charming faces.
“Nefertiti Holding the hand of Goddess Isis” is a monumental 36” by 60” mixed media painting that glorifies the ancient Egyptian Deities Queen Nefertiti and Goddess Isis.
As you gaze into their eyes you can feel the magic and mystery of this ancient Egyptian era.
