ARTIST’S STATEMENT

 

Although educated with a degree in medicine, I have always been a painter and a sculptor. I have studied art at Parsons, NYU, and Cooper Union but have found experimentation and imagination to be the best teachers.

 

My paintings are always enigmatic. What I see is not always what the viewer interprets and I relish that.

ABOUT RANDE'S WORK

 

I use a range of orthodox and unorthodox materials in my work that include acrylics, mica powders, inks, oil, sand, etc. My grounds are usually canvas or birch/maple wood although I have even made a series of masks using horseshoe-crab shells. My sculptures are mostly wood or shells. I even made a 6’ man out of oyster shells.

 

I am delighted to be joining Steve Alpert and Heidi Wienike in the 49th Parallel Gallery.
