Sculptures

 

Rainer is fascinated by the human body, the classic theme of artistic expression and struggle, depicted in all shapes, materials and mediums since the existence of mankind. 

Rainer’s sculpture captures the human body in motion--a freeze frame of classic, timeless gestures and emotions.  The sculptures are both ethereal and concrete.  The forms he creates are how one imagines a Nureyev or Baryshnikov would look in mid-flight.     

Rainer uses hollow metal squares to sculpt the human form, creating works that elicit both the strength and delicacy of the body. Each square represents the trials and tribulations of life. The four corners are the intellectual, emotional, physical and spiritual dimension of human being. They are the framework of the spirit and the image of the body. 

The hollow squares strip away distractions, leaving a powerful vision and exploration of the human body, adding an element of mystery and abstraction. 

This technique adds a spiritual dimension to the human shapes and forms and gives Rainer’s sculptures a universal quality. 

With all of Rainer's sculptures there is a secondary layer of beauty, abstraction and mystery. When darkness falls and the lights come on, the exquisite shadows of form, squares, body and spirit cast themselves upon the walls creating a second sculpture of light and shadow.
