Gavin Rain
Gavin Rain (b. 1971) lives and works in Cape Town. Best known for his highly technical neo-pointillist style paintings, Gavin Rain’s work nods toward the structure and rigour of digital printing technologies. Rain’s carefully planned compositions are underpinned by hours of preparation: each dot of painting meticulously mapped using projection or a string grid superstructure over his canvas. The resulting portraits are an elegant challenge to the limitations of human vision: familiar subjects snap into focus only as we allow our eyes and brain a bit of distance to process the complex arrangements of colour and composition. In 2013, Rain’s work was included in the Bangladesh Pavillion at the 55th Venice Biennale.
