John Randall Nelson Art

b. 1956

John Randall Nelson is an American abstract painter and sculptor, based in Phoenix, Arizona. His works are layered with his language, consisting of patterns, symbols and archetypes that may not make any literal sense, but play on subconscious associations. His paintings are thick with poured pigment, saturated washes and worked with layers of drawing and collage. While Nelson's work is akin to an outsider, folk art, it is noteworthy that he received his MFA degree from Arizona State University, in 1995, and has completed commissions for projects as diverse as the National Endowment for the Arts, the United States Postal Service and the BIO5 / Institute for Bio-Research, at the University of Arizona.
