Randy Dudley

Randy Dudley (b. in 1950 in Peoria, IL) is a second-generation Photorealist, whose work focuses on the semi-industrial landscapes that dot the northeastern and central United States. Unlike many of the other Photorealists who have concentrated on idyllic landscapes, Dudley’s work captures overlooked locales, drawing attention to their melancholic beauty and the consequences of industrialization. Amongst the Photorealists, Dudley is a particularly strong draughtsman, who is known not only for his paintings but for his works in graphite as well. His works are in many public collections including the Brooklyn Museum of Art and the Art Institute of Chicago. Randy Dudley lives and works in Ottawa, IL.

Recent group exhibitions include “Photorealism: Beginnings to Today,” New Orleans Museum of Art, New Orleans, LA; “Photorealism: 50 Years of Hyperrealistic Painting,” Kunsthalle Tübingen, Tübingen, Germany, which traveled to Museo Thyssen Bornemisza, Madrid, Spain; Birmingham Museum and Art Gallery, Birmingham, England; Art Museum of Estonia, Tallinn, Estonia; and Musee d’lxelles, Ixelles, Belgium; “Beyond Reality: Hyperrealism & American Culture,” Vero Beach Museum of Art, Vero Beach, FL; & “Shock of the Real: Photorealism Revisited,” Boca Raton Museum of Art, Boca Raton, FL.
