Barry Reithmeier is a self-taught artist and a pioneer in the New Media Art Movement. Born and raised in Rockford Ill, Barry is inspired by artists such as Salvador Dali and Leonardo Nierman. Barry’s art begins with no photographs and makes no use of filters or fractal programs. This art is pure creation. The trademarks of his work are color and composition creating images that leave a permanent impression on the viewer.
To further enhance the impact of his work it is imaged onto a metallic based photographic paper which gives the work an illusion of emitting light. A frameless display system was developed to emphasize the drama and scale of the images while giving his art full protection from harmful elements. This display method also makes the image appear to float on the surface where it is displayed. His pieces are truly unique and are like nothing that has ever been done before.
