About Sally Rayn

Sally Rayn paints abstract acrylics on canvas and charcoal on paper in a profusion of colors or shades of gray. People often see faces, creatures or plants hidden amidst the distinct lines and shapes in Rayn’s artwork. Sometimes, with a shift of focus, the lines reconnect into a different symbol, a different memory. She calls this style Dynamic Symbolism.

Rayn applies these ideas in several ways using the creative tools of video animation and touchscreen technology. The Dynamic Symbolism Project is a touchscreen application that records symbols seen in her paintings. Rayn creates video art that combines her animated painting and nature to illustrate this exploration of perception and archetypal symbols. She uses the mobile app Aurasma to connect still images of her paintings to her video art.

Sally Rayn hosts the local television show, Talk Art, and interviews artists who exhibit in SVOS: YouTube Channel - SVOSTalkArt.
