Statement

Randy Sprout began his art career in 1964 at the University of Iowa, printmaking and studying with Mauricio Lasansky and Dr. John Schultz. His works were mostly about images of his family, as icons that would hold up to artist scrutiny for decades to come. Army service in Korea interrupted his art for two years, after which he studied with Robert Heinecken, Jan Stussy, Ray Brown, Sam Amato, Richard Diebenkorn and Stanton MacDonald-Wright, in the UCLA Graduate School of Fine Arts. It was there he began to draw back into the photographic plates and learned how to work and manipulate the images from within the media, rather than relying on the camera. He had many shows during that time, including a One Man show at the Santa Barbara Art Museum. He also worked during that time for the LACMA museum, with Ben Johnson, and got to restore many priceless prints for Norman Simon.

Working closely with Jan Stussy and Stanton McDonald-Wright, he began painting and his drawings began to get larger and better. In 1973, he was awarded a Fullbright Scholarship to restore some Goya steel-faced etchings at the Prado, in Lisbon. Then Ruth Weisberg of the USC Department of Art reached out to him, and he worked there for 2 years. After that, he taught teaching and printmaking for 4 years at the UCLA Art Extension then taught painting, printmaking and drawing at Pierce College. He coauthored the book “Innovative Printmaking” 1977 Crown Publishers, New York.

In 1977, Randy got his real estate license, opened Century 21 Hollywood Inc., and focused on running the business and making it a successful franchise. He still doodled with pen and inks, especially at the beach or on vacations. But it was not until 2008, when he saw the Gold Medal show of Plein Artists from the California Art Club in Pasadena that his passion for this medium began. His first paintings in this medium were in Barcelona, on the streets, setting and drawing the waiters and workers in the wonderful fall light striking down between those old buildings so close together. His work can be found in the following Collections: Archives Ohlone College, Fremont, California Grunwald Graphic Art Center, U.C.L.A. Photographic Collection, School of Fine Art, Ohio State University, Photographic Collection, Oakland Museum of Fine Art, California. 44 U.S. Embassies around the world, Photographic Collection, U.C .L A Fall River Art Association, Mass. Photographic Collection, School of Fine Art, University of lowa. Print Collection of Los Angeles County Museum of Art.
