Closing reception on July 26 (6:00-9:00 p.m.)

Randy McNamara lives in Hampstead, North Carolina, where he maintains a studio and teaches painting at the Leland Cultural Arts Center. Previously, he lived in Los Angeles California, exhibiting his work at Gallery 825 and various other venues in the region.

He has an M.F.A. from Indiana University in Bloomington, and a B.S. in Biology from the University of Kansas. While at KU, he discovered and named an isozyme of wild sunflowers and was also Outstanding Senior in Ceramics.

His background in biology has influenced his work primarily through the use of biomorphic forms and the notion that everything functions within an interconnected matrix of infinite elements in flux. A puzzle being assembled, disassembled and reassembled for eternity. His work employs acrylics and paper applied to canvas in a painterly manner with an interest in color, rich surfaces and the conundrum of the center.
