Kirk Randle in the Spotlight in Santa Fe
May 1 - May 31
The beauty of Kirk’s home ground, southern Utah’s red-rock country with the Rocky Mountain vistas, has always stirred him. “I never tire of painting the red-rock vistas, Kirk says. Kirk feels that the skies in his artworks frequently set the tone for their overall mood.
Kirk credits the two opportunities he and son James had to paint at Edward Hopper’s summer studio in Truro, MA, as “definitely life changing” highlights of his career. Hopper had been Kirk’s hero when Kirk was in college, and, when one of Kirk’s collectors introduced him to the beneficiaries of the Hopper estate, Kirk and James were invited to visit and paint. “It was historic, glorious, and humbling,” says Kirk. “It’s a small but beautiful space with huge warehouse windows. The view is right up the Cape and out over big dunes—it’s a patchwork of color, right on the coast. I was awestruck.”
