Lydia Randolph is a full-time artist living in a remote area of north Alabama. She is inspired by Gauguin’s violent use of color, Mary Cassatt’s delicate and precise renderings, and Eakins' honesty. Lydia paints things from her life, relics and ruins of our dwindling agrarian society, trucks and equipment left to grow into the weeds and trees. Things loved enough not to be discarded but no longer needed, left to be reabsorbed by the very earth that they once tended. She sees both a tragic and stunning poetry in our mountains, creeks and canyons.
