Fellow Detroit-based artist, George Rahme, is on a rampage. Or perhaps I should coin the term, Rahme-page. This past weekend I attended the opening for his new series, Fire Over Water at Public Pool in Hamtramck, Michigan. The excruciatingly tedious detail and complex use of layering in his collage work is simply unmatched. Multiply that by the overall scale of each piece (some measuring 8×8 feet), and it’s immediately apparent that he’s charging right into the upper echelons of world-renowned artists. Out of the way, Rahme is coming through!
