Artist: Clifford Rainey

  • Clifford Rainey is a British artist whose work has been exhibited internationally for thirty-five years. Principally a sculptor who employs cast glass and drawing as primary methodologies, his work is interdisciplinary, incorporating a wide spectrum of materials and processes.

Celtic mythologies, classical Greek architecture, the blue of the Turkish Aegean, Globalization and the iconic American Coca-Cola bottle, the red of the African earth, the human figure combined with cultural diversity all intermingle to provide sculptural imagery charged with emotion.
