Randall Day makes complicated work about simple ideas. Contrast, repetition, and gradation are the overarching themes his work conveys. The substrate to most Randall’s work is geometric abstract expressionism. His oil paintings are large, visceral, and layered compositions of color and depth. Randall’s colored pencil drawings and collages are more meticulous and controlled in their chaos. Currently, he has incorporated textured security envelopes into his practice. Fascinated at their function, to conceal and inevitably be compromised, he experiments how their manic, yet organized aesthetic meshes with his abstract mark making.
