Clifford Rainey: In the Beginning Was Black


Artist Clifford Rainey explores the concept, purpose, reason, and processes employed to formulate the works in his solo exhibition In the Beginning Was Black, displayed at Bullseye Gallery September 4 to November 2, 2013.

Rainey's starting point for the new work is the human experience of loss. Combining this with the physicality of the color black sparked his investigation into the symbolism and the visual elements of this dark dense matter.
