ABOUT THE ARTIST
Randy McNamara lives in Hampstead North Carolina where he maintains a studio and teaches painting at the Leland Cultural Arts Center. Previously he lived in Los Angeles California, exhibiting at Gallery 825, and various other venues in the region.
He has an M.F.A. from Indiana University in Bloomington, and a B.S. in Biology from the University of Kansas. While at K.U. he discovered and named an isozyme of wild sunflowers and was Outstanding Senior in Ceramics.
His background in biology has influenced his work primarily through the use of biomorphic forms and the notion that everything functions within an interconnected matrix of infinite elements in flux. A puzzle being assembled, disassembled and reassembled for eternity.
His work employs acrylics and paper applied to canvas in a painterly manner with an interest in color, rich surfaces and the conundrum of the center.
