Randy Jacobs Biography
JACOBS paints for the healing of all people. Color indeed heals all wounds, celebrates great joy, and speaks all languages. Trained from an education of faith, loss, and survival, Randy is an contemporary painter who achieves striking results by building composition layer by layer. Color is the focus of his work and easily evokes peacefulness, harmony, and mood. His latest knock-out release and sell-out of the "Cross" entered him into Dallas' art scene as an up and coming contemporary painter who has found his voice with the brush.
tex·ture [ teks-cher] noun, verb, -tured, -tur·ing. –noun 1. the visual and esp. tactile quality of a surface: rough texture. 3. the characteristic physical structure given to a material, an object, etc., by the size, shape, arrangement, and proportions of its parts. col·or [ kuhl-er] –noun 1. the quality of an object or substance with respect to light reflected by the object, usually determined visually by measurement of hue, saturation, and brightness of the reflected light. Jacobs started painting on the heels of the Pentagon tragedy and came to Dallas to be near his family and pursue his painting. His love of texture and color have spilled onto his canvas. And after three limited edition giclee sell-outs with work appraised from 10K-30K by the International Fine Art Dealers, he now dedicates his works to one of a kind originals layering literally thousands of layers of paint and media to tell the stories of love and loss, hope and redemption. Deep in the texture, he believes, our textures, lie our lights, very bright lights. We are, he insists, lights given to a very dark world around us today. No one can stop us from shining. Shining is our purpose. Randy has found immense inspiration in the drawings of Hogarth and the painting of Jim Frederick.

Artist's Statement:
Living in Maryland near Washington D.C. put him right in the center of the 9/11 tragedy at the Pentagon and the subsequent sniper attacks. "I was just blown away by the terror dumped on these people, especially children," he says as he began to put paint to canvas. " Children were literally put on "lock-down" in schools and parents were stooping down behind their vehichles for protection as they pumped gas." Thus he made an immediate decision to leave the corporate world, re-locate to Texas near his family, and pursue art with every living breath. Randy began sharing his color at his first solo showing in Sundance Square, Ft. Worth, Texas, at the Circle Theatre and is now sharing his healing works, putting his art in the hands, hearts, and souls of collectors around the United States and around the world. He paints with shapes, colors, and layers to create balance. " Balance lives in the present," one of his mentors said, and continued, "The way to lose your footing is to focus on what dreadful things may happen. When you feel the earth moving, bring yourself back to the now. You'll handle whatever shake-up might happen. In this moment you're still breathing. In this moment, you've survived. In this moment, you've found a new place to move your feet so you can step onto higher ground. " Randy encourages you and challenges you to build your faith as you choose, promote peace where ever you might be standing, and support artists and organizations that bring art to our children, especially those in schools, where there might be just one little one saying, " I need a dose of hope."
