John Randall Nelson (Illinois 1956 - )


John Randall Nelson is a Phoenix-based painter and sculptor. Nelson’s works are layered with his own personal 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. It’s strength lies in the terrain between the narrative and the abstract. He has work in the permanent collections of Scottsdale Museum of Contemporary Art, Scottsdale, AZ, Arizona State University Art Museum, Tempe AZ among other prominent public and private collections.
