Bio
LOUD. It is a word often used to describe something unpleasant and bothersome, but in the artwork of Colter MF Raines, it loses its pejorative connotation. Regularly neglecting softer and more earthly tones, CMFR's loud style of painting draws inspiration from the bold colors of the Post-Impressionists, the maniacal abstractions of Jackson Pollock, the surrealistic imagery of cartoons, and the c...ritics-be-damned attitude of Pablo Picasso giving each portrait its own distinct identity. Whether it be personifying the definition of a word, depicting seductive women with neon orange hair, examining the many facets that make up our psychology, transposing poetry into portraiture, or translating his own emotional release, many a motif can be found throughout his collection (and, sometimes, numerous within a single piece). The subjects of CMFR's constructs make a connection in us; be it perhaps people we have encountered, experiences we have endured, images we have known or imagined, or a part of ourselves we tend to ignore, his portraits each capture a colorful piece of our character in vibrant hues and undeniable individuality.
