Grey/Orange Palms

Orangle Palms

From a recent showing of these paintings at the Art Center Palisades in Los Angeles...

Scott Randle chooses the seacoast as the theme upon which he experiments with color.  "Abstract painting is my real love, and the sea and sky theme is the right vehicle for me to lay down bands of color with bits of detail to add interest", he explains.  Randle's love for the sea is attributed to his childhood spent in California coastal towns.  All through school he was drawn to art and in high school learned "everything from his art teacher Dwayne Peters, from how to paint signs of commercial quality to how to paint palm trees."  Over the past 15 years, he has developed a reputation for his surf photography and seascapes.  A dozen years ago, Randle returned to school to study painting under Don Thompson in Santa Cruz.  "Don was an accomplished hard edge abstract painter who exposed me to the great abstract painters: Mark Rothko, Jackson Pollock, Richard Diebenkorn, and others." says Randle.  "It was the work of Rothko that expressed what I wanted to communicate in my photography and paintings.  I was drawn to his fields of color."
