Randy Cooper’s exquisite Shadow Sculptures captivate the eye with their simplicity and tease the mind with the subtle details in their shadows. The intriguing juxtaposition of sculpture and shadow enagages the viewer through its unique visual impact. Randy is largely self-taught, with little formal art education. After working in clay, artificial stone and bronze, Randy began creating intriguing sculptures in steel wire mesh, which cast fine, drawing-like shadows on the wall. He works with models, which give his work an uncanny lifelike quality. His inherent understanding of materials has allowed him to develop his own intuitive techniques in creating these dynamic sculptures. With his large powerful hands, he fashions each Shadow Sculpture, creating original, classical forms that are alive with motion and grace. The shadows take on a life of their own and sometimes look uniquely different from the original image. By changing the position of the light source or by moving the sculpture slightly, an entire new work of art is brought to life.
