SV Randall: as pair legged Roswell Artist-in-Residence
January 25 - March 8, 2020 Marshall and Winston Gallery Opening Reception: Friday, January 24 5:30pm: Lecture 6-7pm: Reception
Roswell Artist-In-Residence SV Randall has always been drawn to how architecture and common commodities influence the ways in which we traverse the world. Deeply inspired by opposing notions of interiority and exteriority, his sculptures often address topics of boundaries and barriers. Through the poetry of everyday experience and the use of symbolically charged materials, many of his artworks mimic the veneer of different strands in American society’s material culture.
For his exhibition at RMAC, he will present a new series of sculptures inspired by a sense of placelessness. Meticulously crafted suitcases ranging in size and style are rendered in subtle gradients of subdued colors atop a myriad of splintered architectural platforms – evoking a state of fractured displacement and nomadism.
SV Randall is an interdisciplinary artist from Buffalo, NY. He received his MFA in Sculpture + Extended Media from VCU and his BFA from Alfred University. His work has been exhibited at David & Schweitzer Contemporary, Brooklyn, NY; the El Paso Museum of Art, El Paso, TX; Ditch Projects, Eugene, OR; and the Museo de Arte de Ciudad Juárez in Mexico. SV is the recipient of the Toby Devin Lewis Fellowship Award and has most recently participated in residencies at the Skowhegan School of Painting and Sculpture (Skowhegan, ME), Sculpture Space (Utica, NY), the Fine Arts Work Center (Provincetown, MA), and the Vermont Studio Center (Johnson, VT).
