Artist Spotlight: Randy Purcell

Since studying art at MTSU, Randy has been fascinated with art’s impact on memory. The connection between the two has been the constant theme in his work. He strives to make paintings that feel like old, happy memories. To achieve this, he uses “encaustic art,” a process which means to ‘burn in’ and usually includes pigmented beeswax. Randy uses beeswax as a base to create a patina, and magazine ink to add color and visual texture into the subject, like the text and imagery make up a living thought. Adding various colors in a mosaic style allows for different lights to make up the subject. The final effect is an iconic image reconstructed with a fluid, emotional value.

Randy’s work has been received with praise locally and beyond, with showcases that included a mural for Nashville’s ARTober celebration, a Metro Arts Nashville bike rack design, Artclectic at USN, Harding Academy, frequent showcases in the downtown Nashville art crawls, art school technique demos (including MTSU) , Artfields in SC, and international showcases like ArtPrize and solo gallery exhibits. He is also on the board of two non-profits, Number Inc. Magazine and Turnip Green Creative Reuse.
