Check out Randy Doering’s Artwork

Today we’d like to introduce you to Randy Doering.

Randy, we’d love to hear your story and how you got to where you are today both personally and as an artist.
My story began as a young kid on my grandpa’s cattle ranch in Kansas. Grandpa Hank could build anything. I was especially interested in his welding on projects. That early love of working with metal led to my future education, employment with well-known artists and eventually into my own endeavor, Metal Method Company. MMC is a custom fabrication company. When I’m not creating custom home décor, I utilize my shop space and fabrication experiences to research and refine my art.

We’d love to hear more about your art. What do you do you do and why and what do you hope others will take away from your work?
Growing up in Kansas, I wasn’t aware of my true artistic inspiration until moving to Hawaii after college. I had an interest in abstract metal sculptures through college, but Hawaii and the sea opened my eyes. I took my new experiences in paradise along with my love of working with metal and started to form ideas from sea life and the ocean textures and lines.

Everything in the ocean changes, constantly, which is what I love most about it. I can always find new inspiration within it. I want to show how I view the sea through the textures I create or the acid patina colors I combine. My hope is people take my creations and dream up their own textures and colors the next time they visit the sea.

Have things improved for artists? What should cities do to empower artists?
Artists have so much information out there today with the internet and social media. I believe that helps a lot with researching new ideas and finding the materials, mediums and finishes an artist might need. Artists ideas or concepts put on display instantaneously would be the only downside using these platforms today.

All the festivals where an artist can rent a booth are helping to encourage the art scene. I could see more public art projects as a way to help art thrive.

Do you have any events or exhibitions coming up? Where would one go to see more of your work? How can people support you and your artwork?
I am currently showing artwork at Del Mar Art Center, Del Mar, CA; Brandon Gallery, Fallbrook, CA; Laguna Gallery of Contemporary Art (LGOCA) Laguna, CA; Wyland Signature Galleries Haleiwa and Waikiki, Ohau HI.

I will have a booth at La Jolla Art and Wine Festival this coming October.
