Bio:
SV Randall is an interdisciplinary artist from Buffalo, NY. He received his MFA in Sculpture + Extended Media from VCU and his BFA from Alfred University. His work has been exhibited at David & Schweitzer Contemporary, Brooklyn, NY; the El Paso Museum of Art, El Paso, TX; Ditch Projects, Eugene, OR; and the Museo de Arte de Ciudad Juárez in Mexico. SV is the recipient of the Toby Devin Lewis Fellowship Award and has most recently participated in residencies at the Skowhegan School of Painting and Sculpture (Skowhegan, ME), Sculpture Space (Utica, NY), the Fine Arts Work Center (Provincetown, MA), the Vermont Studio Center (Johnson, VT), and the Roswell Artist-in-Residence Program (Roswell, NM). He is currently an Assistant Professor of Visual and Performing Arts at the University of Texas at Dallas.
Artist Statement:
My practice encompasses a range of media including sculpture, installation, painting, and performance that address the various ways in which objects mutate in nature and function across time.     The recurring question that drives my work has been - how does our exterior perception mesh with our interior selves? Exploring the misalignment from this question has become a fissure that has opened new paths to understand how we situate ourselves in the world; principally highlighting larger issues of social visibility, class structures, technological obsolesce, and spatial politics.   Through the poetry of everyday experience and the use of symbolically charged materials I create sculptures that mimic the veneer of different strands in American society’s material culture. A hyper-consumerist store display staged in the vast belly of an abandoned grocery store, a feeble TSA checkpoint used to sift, sort, and catalogue hundreds of pounds of dust, and a speculative ghost town set on the border between two neighboring countries. Materiality is core in all of my projects to ostensibly reactivate specific materials that coalesce object, site, and narrative in physical form.
