Current Gallery: Portrait (18 pieces)
This gallery you will find portraits, and figurative art of American artist RD Randy Riccoboni in both painting and drawing. From the artist's studio located at Beacon Artworks Gallery in Old Town San Diego State Historic Park. Artist Statement: Color is the first thing you notice about my work. What makes it 'pop' is the placement of color and texture. My palette is derived from the prismatic colors in the original rainbow flag which represent sexuality, healing, sun, nature, art, harmony, peace and spirit. As a painter I am a visual storyteller. An intuitive message comes when creating the art - perhaps it is playful, calming, erotic, disturbing, political, or even sacred. I like to flirt with the issues and experiences we face in everyday life, the things we do, the buildings we construct and live in and the destination places we congregate and go to that define our lives. Whether positive, humorous, or thought provoking, my work portrays events people relate to while creating a sense of place for the viewer. As a person who just happens to be an artist, I am not here to ask the meaning of life but rather answer the question to life by being responsible and proactive in creating. By painting and drawing what I see, I am creating not just what I see but what others, the people who view my art work, who may also be seeing yet not noticing. Creating art empowers me, and others to access more closely our wants, desires, dreams and hopes through the visual creative arts. Through the years an evolution in my art is constantly taking place, a visual re-write on my canvas and paper and as the years go by my art brings to me and my audience new insights and new visions to our changing lives and expanding our perspectives together. Being a self-taught artist, and not a skilled technician, I see myself as a medium or channel for the creative energies of the Universe to express its constant evolving. Randy RD Riccoboni is an insightful, American born artist (California, 1960) influenced by a plethora of sights, sounds, colors, textures and emotion. This self-taught artist acquired his drive and inspiration from encouragement given him by family, friends and public school teachers. Riccoboni’s profound love for art and architecture are evidenced in his paintings, landscape and portrait masterpieces; art work that captures the essence of a person’s spirit, the love given from animals as well as the beauty and intensity in his land and cityscapes.
