Clifford Rainey: In the Beginning Was Black

RICHARD SPEER
Saturday October 19
Bullseye Gallery
300 NW 13th Ave.
 
After a year of harrowing personal losses, Clifford Rainey transmuted grief into a suite of mournful but gorgeous glass and mixed-media sculptures. The show’s iconic work, Mourner, is a two-foot-high stylization of the Grim Reaper. The sculpture depicts only the figure’s black robe; there is nothing inside except empty space and shadow. It's a powerful piece, impeccably executed, deeply unsettling. Through Nov. 2.
