I Felt Like a Moth, mixed media

Terry Rathje is working on his MFA at the University of Iowa. He is also currently a design instructor at Western Illinois University.

My art is about rearranging reality. I spend half my time taking things apart and learning how they are made, and the other half putting them back together and learning about myself.

By observing and internalizing how the world is put together, the world inside and the world outside meet in some sort of strange juxtaposition that I really don't understand until the process is done. This meeting of the inside world and the outside world is at the heart of what I do.
