Randall Stoner

Randy’s high-relief wood sculptures are a fantasy lover’s dream come true. Take a trip into a weird world of dragons, elves, and goblins.

How would you describe your style

The best description of the art I do, regarding style, is Magical Realism. My approach is to seek out as much depth as possible.  I want (need) my work to appear so very real, and drag the onlooker in for a better view.

What subjects do you enjoy working on?

My work is very consistent, which allows me to choose from a variety of subject matter. The subjects that I am most often drawn to are in the fantasy realm.  However, occasionally I feel a need to create based on other fascinating topics.

What medium(s) do you work in?

Wood.  Specifically, my go-to species are Basswood, Birch, and Butternut.

How has your process evolved?

Evolution for my work has been achieved through depth, detail, and color. Over the past 20 plus years, I found that getting more depth provided me with greater realism, detail with more believability, and color with vivid emotion.

What got you started creating art?

Boy Scouts, as a child.  Further, I think the creative spirit was always there and unconsciously “looking” for a way to be expressed.  The thought of these two factors, when they collided, was like nothing I ever felt before.

What artists influence your work?

Though my own work is done mainly in high relief, I am influenced by sculpture artists that create 360 degree works of art, such as the ancient Greeks, among more modern artists.
