What do you do?
Among other things I make hard edge paintings.
What is your favorite style?
I work in multiple medias but in the field of painting I’m interested in formalist abstraction and in clearly defined areas of color, thus I use a hard edge technique.
What do you strive for?
I want to make art that is both a visual experience and a transformative one.
My basic philosophy is to live life creatively.
Tell us something, Randall
We are surrounded by visual language, some mediated, and some not. All of which contributes to how we understand our world. Media plays a roll in socializing images and therefore in how we construct meaning. My work is about the information that comes at us, both overtly and covertly. What appears to be one thing is always encoded with something other. My surfaces, move, shift, and destabilize, creating moments of rupture and change. At the same time the work is about visual pleasure. We can enjoy that which changes us. I wonder – Is there something called issue based abstraction?
