Raychael Stine was just finishing her art degree at the University of Texas of Dallas when I was starting my MA in humanities. Stine was already kind of a star from the school. She came out the with a show in Marfa, Texas. She worked with Richard Patterson (an artist in the Sensation Show and part of the Young British Artists). She had a great show at Road Agent Gallery a few years back. She just finished her Master of Fine Arts in Chicago. I think her new work has moved into a more conservative phase that has dropped some of the comic book outlines and fun gestural painting. I am not sure about the new direction, but I know Stine is talented enough to surprise me again.
Update: August 9th 2011, I knew I was right, Stine came back to a more experimental style. I really like how her work shifts from abstract, to collage, to realist work. It is clear she took the tools from her MFA and ran with it in an exciting and new direction. I hope to see another show of her work in Dallas some day.
