Gavin Rain Home Exhibition Information Questions Talk To
The website for Gavin Rain, pointillist. texture. closeup of the painting on the right. a black and white painting. well my version of one anyway. my version of shading (of the painting on the left). dots get smaller combined colours get lighter. I've been trying to help Aung San Suu Kyi. I did a portrait of her for the 54th Venice Biennale thinking it might raise awareness. While in Venice for the show I got the idea to call up her lawyer and ask him if he needed funds for her legal matters. He said he was fine, but put me in touch with her foundation. I'm now working with them. Hopefully that goes well. each dot of the Aung San Suu Kyi painting was a representation of a flag of the world. that's South Africa in the middle. to relax I sometimes paint landscapes. always cityscapes. the buildings glow. the people do not. a closeup of the texture. usually I start with a sketch. that barely resembles the final painting... the same for portraits. without the constraint of 11 colours (which pretty much all flags come in) I could shade a lot better. step away from the screen if you want to see the image as you'd see it from across a room I finally got off that damn ladder.
