‘Feeling the landscape’: Randy Allen’s art is ‘alive with intensity and intimacy’ | Vermont Arts

“If it’s looking back at me, I know it’s done,” says Randy Allen, standing in the Highland Center for the Arts gallery, an array of his emotional abstract landscapes looking back at him and other viewers.

Sunflower yellow fields, stormy skies, that thin strip of brilliant orange light that bursts between the mountains and clouds at sunset – with color and bold brushstrokes, Allen incorporates an abundance of movement and light into his paintings. Combining a sense of spontaneity and connection with the landscape, his paintings are alive with intensity and intimacy.
