Randolph Parker is a Canadian artist living on Salt Spring Island and in Victoria British Columbia. Randolph a thirty five year veteran on the Canadian art scene has observed his artistic landscape paintings change from intimate images of forests and lakes created in a style reminiscent of the Group of Seven’s paintings to sweeping vistas of the Canadian landscape done on a monumental scale.
His formal art training began at Mt. Allison University in Sackville, New Brunswick. He later attended the Banff Centre and continued to study at York University in Ontario. He studied under such eminent instructors as David Silverberg, Takao Tanabe, Paul Sloggett, and Ken Carpenter.
"For myself, art is the pursuit of happiness; for not to create would be to deny who I am. My art is the integration of things seen and experienced, the record of my existence, the pursuit of perfection and the constant that will be developed to the end. Only time will tell if the vision within the work has meaning enough to enhance the lives of others in the future. Seeing the subtleties of life is my inspiration, to translate it onto canvas is my desire and to play with paint is my passion. The paintings in this book are a small reflection of who I am and what I have seen."
