Biography

Randall Lake b. 1947, California

Randall Lake studied at the Sorbonne in 1968. When riots closed the school he continued to study on the left-bank with Claude Schurr at the Academie Julian. He completed his English degree Cum Laude at the University of Colorado at Boulder. Then in 1972, he studied with Gustave Singier at the Ecole Nationale Superieure des Beaux Arts. Later, while teaching American English in Paris, he studied printmaking with S.W. Hayter at the Atelier 17.

Randall Lake is a 21st century painter drawn to 19th century’s realism. He states, “My paintings are painted from life, I dislike working from photographs because the photographic image is so static and unchanging that one ends up copying the material rather than interpreting. There is nothing like painting on location for that chemistry bred of urgency, of wanting to get it right, of struggling to capture the momentary, and of having to discern what is essential and what is not.”
