About Randall David Tipton

I grew up in California, came of age in New Mexico and I’ve lived and worked in Portland, OR for many years. The landscape has been my primary artistic interest from an early age. I’m mostly self taught and have been deeply influenced by the American abstract expressionists, particularly by their belief in improvisation as path to something unique and meaningful. I was fortunate to work briefly with Richard Diebenkorn in the first master class at the new Santa Fe Institute of Fine Art. As an avid walker, I explore, study, record and remember the various landscapes of northwestern Oregon as the basis of my work. My paintings are the result of trial and error. Though I have deep feeling for my subjects, my intentions are aesthetic. A mood, memory, drawing or photo gets things started. The painting is built by casual experiments which are developed, altered and often removed. Sometimes description and contour prevail, other times, an abstract atmosphere of the place itself. Through the process, I hope to construct a work that has inherent interest and is in the spirit of the particular landscape.
