Our Featured Artist is Randy Greenwood!
Randy, 16, is entering the eleventh grade at Patrick Henry High School. He began creating about two years ago after he was involved in a football accident. He broke his back in four places and was instructed by his doctor to stay away from strenuous activities. After hearing the news that his football career was over, Randy’s father, Joel, taught him how to TIG weld. Randy caught on fast to the process of welding, as it soon became a daily occurrence for he and his father to visit the workshop. Joel states, “Once he understood the basics, he flourished. He then saw the possibilities of all the creative ideas he could apply. It turned out to be a natural fit”.
Randy’s parents explain, “Ever since he was very young he has always had a creative spark for building things”. He uses recycled steel and welds them into different shapes to create his work such as, “Dream Weaver”. His inspiration comes from creating objects that are set in motion, for example his piece “Iron Hog”.
Randy Greenwood has an eye for perfection, which can be seen in his sleek work. Come by Gallery Flux today from 11am-5pm to see Randy Greenwood’s work in our “Undiscovered.” Show. Want to see more work from Randy? Visit our website! You will be in awe of the talent this young artist has to offer!
