Leah Rainey works within a combined tradition of process painting and direct painting using a broad range of techniques that interconnect through coincidence and the accidental. These paintings explore the elusive ground between the physical presence of the painted surface and latent memories, images and thoughts. Working with a reductive process of editing to explore the visual space around and between things, Rainey observes and reveals that which is often overlooked; what we unconsciously register. Leah Rainey is a Canadian painter who lives and works in Toronto, Canada. Rainey attended Loughborough College of Art and Design in Loughborough, England and received her BA Honours in Fine Art from Chelsea College of Art and Design in London. Her work is held in various private and public collections in Canada, the US, the UK and Europe. She is represented by Dianna Witte Gallery in Toronto and has an upcoming exhibition of new work with Elissa Crystall Gallery Vancouver in spring 2024.
