Raychael Stine - Artists - Cris Worley Fine Arts

Raychael Stine make luscious, joyful paintings that integrate multiple painterly languages and approaches to mark, texture, and levels of visual legibility, allowing for playful slippage between formal and material abstraction and traditional devices of painterly representation. Stine plays with frame and the embedded structure of a dog portrait turned on its side. Color schemes come from looking at photographs, flowers, skies, dogs, hummingbirds, rainbows, postcards and more. Moves are inspired by sensual experiences like sniffing, kissing, and crying. A trompe l'oeil teardrop becomes a dog’s ear or a petal. A cosmos flower is a portal into the greater cosmos.
