“Randy is a self-described “idea machine” and just looking around his studio space it’s obvious he needs to keep his hands busy— a multitude of pieces are scattered about, at different stages of construction or deconstruction. His approach to ideas is to work them out physically, to test, push, and play with his materials and shake out all the unseen potential living inside a piece of Styrofoam packaging or a steel beam. What is challenging about Randy’s work is also what I appreciate about it— initially it somehow seems impenetrable, perplexing; at times almost too stripped down to find a anything to hold onto…but this forces you to consider your own approach to art that appears inaccessible— it demands that you spend time with it,examining, wondering, theorizing, and that you commit to it enough to find your own points of access.” (Nikki Grattan, In the Make)
