"My art practice has historically been about creating ways to push the language of art forward by utilizing unorthodox materials and processes to make large-scale sculptures and murals with the intention of generating discovery, curiosity, and spectral experiences. The Covid Pandemic altered the world so dramatically and I think my reaction was instead to take refuge in what is familiar. I have great interest in the history of art and painting and these works are made from the historic materials of linen, oil paint, and time. The paintings are about meditative work process where the focus is on the brush movement, the viscosity of the paint, breathing and patients. The linen is treated in a way to emulate the chaotic field of the background environment. The painted lines are based on motifs I’ve been working on for decades that related to pipelines, maps, highways spectrum emissions and the ways I navigate through space and time. The Pandemic was a massive world challenge I have learned that troubles are inevitable, but as an Optimist even in the worst of times, beauty and growth can always be found in the aftermath and I think these works are my aftermath."  - Randy Colosky
