Randy Dixon, an Oakland artist, grew up in Kirkwood, Missouri, where he became interested in art at an early age through his father's guidance. After receiving his B.S. and M.Arch. in architecture at University of Illinois and his Illinois license in architecture, he went on to study painting at Illinois State University receiving his MS. He continued his studies at CCA in Oakland where he earned an MFA in painting. Although his concentration was painting, his paintings were both shaped canvas and painted constructions. His work later evolved into architecturally related sculptures that he terms “archiSculpture”, that explores the boundary of psychological space. His work addresses the metaphorical meaning attached to architectural elements, as well as the representational ambiguity of internal and external spaces of consciousness. He has exhibited with the Oakland Museum of California and regional college galleries in Northern California. He was nominated for the SECA award at SFMOMA 2008 and selected as a finalist for the international sculpture exhibition, Cartasia 2012 and Cartasia 2016, in Lucca, Italy.
