About Randall Sexton
California based, Randall Sexton is known for the use of color and expressive brushwork in his oil paintings of “everyday” scenes. Raised in rural Connecticut, Randall Sexton moved to San Francisco, CA in 1980 after completing a BFA from the University of CT, Storrs. In 2008 Randall was honored with the coveted “Artists’ Choice Award” in Laguna Beach. He also won the same award in Telluride, CO and in Napa, CA. He has been featured in various national journals including: “American Artist” -August 2000. He has been a member of the California Art Club, and The Laguna Beach Plein Air Painters Association.
My concerns as an artist have always been rather straight forward. The discipline of direct painting, both in the plein air experience and in the studio, has helped me develop a loose handling of paint that speaks as much about the paint itself as it does any given subject matter. I try to combine traditional methods of painting with a ‘sense of myself living in the present’. My paintings are a direct response to the world around me as I strive to be ‘in the moment” while I work. Nature has proven to be the most demanding and inspiring teacher … so I work from life as often as possible and try to remain open to new ideas and new approaches.
