David Rathman

Frequently incorporating text and image, David Rathman’s works present themselves as fractured narratives—a singular, crucial moment of action in an otherwise protracted story that has been gradually unfolding out of view. (Rochester Art Center, 2013)

He was the recipient of a Bush Foundation Fellowship, two McKnight Foundation Fellowships, and the Minnesota Book Award.
