John Randall Nelson Biography

“Phoenix artist John Randall Nelson’s paintings communicate even before they are understood. Before we sort them out rationally, the images convey a directive that can be at once eccentric and profound.

During the 10 plus years he has been exhibiting in the West, Nelson has become one of the region's most recognizable artists. With their aesthetic and discernment, his paintings have the rare ability to appeal to sophisticated curators and collectors, and still fascinate the general public. Nelson’s work (which is included in the collections of musicians Danny Elfman and John Legend) is especially appreciated by the most discriminating audience of all: other artists. Profuse with signs and heavy with ambiguity; The works rejoice in materiality. These are objects, part of the sensual world.”
