Randall LaGro, painter, printmaker, and assemblage artist has lived in the Southwest for over ten years. He graduated from the Academy of Art in San Francisco, furthering his education with a three-year period as a professional printmaker.
Prior to his formal art studies, Randall developed artistically during years of travel and personal study. This time of exploration and contemplation formed a core of inner experience, which when combined with further technical knowledge, has brought a maturity to his artistic language. This personal language, along with the tangible forms of the work, is a component of the larger structure of this artist’s vision.
“The creative process seeks knowledge. It calls for contemplation. For the creator as well as the spectator it means a journey involving thought, memory, imagination and faith. Excavating though our subconscious, pulling points of light out of darkness, we discover our deeper self and possibly the higher self.”
