  The Post-historic Cave Painting
  The Death of Innocence
Nomm,Rein-Lost in the Maelstrom
Lost in the Maelstrom / Photography / 16 x 12 / 250.00 USD

Description: This work is a visual exploration of the relationship of transience and permanence in art. The original "painting" was short lived, enduring in its liquid state for only a few seconds. The image I recorded with the camera is the two-dimensional record of a three-dimensional fluid work that ceased to exist almost as soon as I created it. Each photograph, however, has become a distinct, and now more permanent, work in its own right. This image is the only trace of the original artwork's short-lived existence and exemplify the role of art in creating the illusion of permanence in a transitory world.

Rein Nomm

Biography
Rein Nomm is an artist and visual explorer who uses paint, clay, film and pixels to create and discover new visual worlds. His work has evolved from recording the beauty and variety of the external world to creating his own imaginary worlds, as evidenced in his paintings, sculptures and digital works. Nomm's work embodies the stylistic undercurrents of Expressionism, Abstract Expressionism, and Lyrical Abstraction; as well as reflecting his Northern European roots and the influences of a formal graduate education in art history and philosophy. His works have been displayed or published by a variety of organizations including: the Museum of the Cherokee Indian, the BBC Collective Gallery; Saatchi Gallery Online; Downtown LA Life International Magazine, Boletin del Instituto Andaluz del Patrimonio Historico (PH 60) in Seville, Spain; Green Hills Literary Lantern, Detroit Free Press, File Magazine, Flak Photo, Exposure Detroit Selective Focus Show, the permanent collection of the Meteor Photo Gallery, and the Agitatto Gallery in Geneva, Switzerland. Nomm's works are also in private collections in Europe and the U.S. His work has been the subject of a one-man show and has appeared in various group shows in the US. Nomm is a self-taught artist who has been honing his artistic skills for over 40 years. He has worked as a professional photographer, off and on, for the past 18 years, undertaking assignments as diverse as architectural photography, executive portraits, and corporate brcohures. He also has taught art history and philosophy at various colleges and universities in Michigan and was chairman of the Humanities Core Program at Duns Scotus College in the 1970s. Nomm has two Master of Arts degrees, one in Humanities (with a focus on art history and aesthetic theory) and the other in Philosophy and he was a Ph.D. candidate in Philosophy at Wayne State University. He was born in a displaced persons (DP) camp in Augsburg, Germany of Estonian parents, and immigrated to the United States in 1950. Nomm grew up in Detroit and currently lives in Plymouth, Michigan with his wife.
