Cheri Randolph was awarded a degree in Fine Arts from the University of New Orleans with a concentration in the study of Art History. She credits printmaker, Calvin Harlan , a UNO professor, as being quite influential in her composition techniques as well as painter, Ida Kohlmeyer with a better understanding of color. Pictorialism would best describe her current work, stylistically. Cheri has expressed her artistic talents in a variety of ways including; wheel-thrown pottery, quilting, vintage clothing restoration, interior decorative painting and photography. She is a resident of both the Houston Heights and historic New Orleans Uptown.
A favorite quote is, 'The bird of time has but a little way to flutter - and the bird is on the wing' - Omar Khayyam.
The meaning of this quotation for me is that everything is fleeting. My goal as an artist is to preserve a momentary glimpse which might otherwise have been lost. I have worked in textile and architectural preservation for several years, which has allowed me to save a tangible bit of history for future generations. With my photography, I attempt to capture a moment to share with others which will transport the viewer to another time and place.
For any interested collector in the Houston, Texas area, my work can be viewed by appointment at Spring Street Studios #211, located in Houston's Historic First Ward at 1824 Spring Street, Houston, Texas 77007. Please send a message to the artist to arrange a convenient time. If you are in the area, join me for our monthly open-studios event every second Saturday afternoon from 2:00-5:00 p.m.
