About Christopher Rainone:
Christopher Rainone is a visual artist who uses photography as the basis for his imagery. His fine art has been shown in juried shows in Portland OR, group shows in both Los Angeles CA and the Detroit area.

In the work he exhibited in his solo shows in both Portland and Los Angeles he explored traditional as well as alternative photographic processes. He has been published nationally in Diffusion, Plazm, Venus and Women Who Rock.

His current work is a blend of film photography and digital processes, in which he questions the nature of the visual record as objective reality. The viewer is invited into landscapes that turn into dreams and half-remembered notions. This journey is rich with all of the mystery and allegory that nebulous state brings.
