Rain Spann Bio

Mission Statement:
My practice is rooted in the process of experimenting with the abstraction of geometric and organic forms, most of which incorporate layering and mixed media, centered around the idea I call 'Geometric-Organicism. This idea reflects the relationship that humans have with nature and technology while also highlighting our interconnectedness with each other and the world around us. I find joy in exploring themes such as growth, duality, and perception since it gives me a chance to reflect on personal experiences and perspectives. My aim is to encourage viewers to reflect on their own relationship with the world, themselves, and others. I also hope to encourage others to appreciate the beauty of the many forms around us. Lately, I have been experimenting with more collage techniques to create multi-medium works that are focused on the metaphorical/literal layers of the human figure.

Rain Spann is an exhibiting fine artist based in Virginia. Spann has devoted extensive time and dedication to his study, utilizing his resources, observation, and environment to further understanding of his surroundings and their foundation. With influences of his digital background and the natural order of nature, Spann implements a blueprint to his own visual language, "Geometric Organicism.” Geometric organicism embodies the fantasy of surrealism, forms of futurism and dynamism, and the intensity of neo-expressionism. With this language, the artist practices self-expression and self-exploration through figurative expression. He strives for balance in his work, often layering shapes and colors to create vibrant and hidden figures. Recently, he has journeyed into collage to further deepen the layers of his work. A signature element of Spann’s pieces are the petal-shaped floral projections found by the figures of the skull, indicating a passage of time and hopefulness for the future. Spann is also a graphic designer, engineer and director.
