randy akers Artist Bio:

I drive down the road and see a place or a name that triggers a visceral response. These locations are always in rough condition: messy, dirty, rusty and in forms of disrepair. The geography is never perfect and all places have a history. I am compelled to make a visual record (although abstracted) of those sites. Sometimes these responses are immediate, and other times stored and ruminated on. Maybe even researched. I always have to look at the underbelly of those places and convey it in my work. The primitive scratch marks are the foundation to begin the layout procedure. The applied paint refuses to stay in the lines. Colors bleed, scar, overlap, spread and stain. My marks are strong and expressionistic and gouge the surface. These marks recur as an intuitive reflex after new layers of paint are applied. The pigment gets lost in the crevices. The salvaged shapes remain monumental, with layered and overlapping raw borders. The process is a struggle and can occur over a period of several months, with layer and layers of decisions and paint applications. It is never straightforward and full of surprises. www.randyakers.com
