Tim Glover
WORKING IN THE MARGINS

“Sometimes I like to make things that are representational that look like they’re supposed to be something, but maybe there’s an odd twist to it or something that just seems a little out of place that makes you have to reconsider it. Other times, the pieces might be more abstract and put together from found scraps and things that suggest no kind of form, and I just follow what I see.”

—Tim Glover

Randall McCabe
DRAWINGS FROM THE EQUINOX

“The Equinox drawings are abstractions rooted in both a recurring formal paradigm going back many years and my predisposition to see the landscape as animate. They are an homage to the ink paintings of the great Asian masters, the cave drawings of prehistory, and the scribbles of small children. The sources of my interest in bilateral symmetry in this work are several. More personally, they are a subtle but incessant recollection, which has threaded itself through my entire life and are, as such and as concisely as I can make them, a mirror image of everything that I know.”

—Randall McCabe

SUMMARY BIOGRAPHY

Randall McCabe was born in Philadelphia in 1953. He attended school at The University of Pennsylvania and at the Cornish College of the Arts in Seattle, Washington (B.F.A. 1983). After moving to Houston, Texas in 1984 and for the next twenty years his artwork sought to find a balance between our most primal impulse to make marks as humans and that point just shy of rational and premeditated artifice.

McCabe has been exhibiting his work since the mid-80’s showing principally in Texas. He hung his first solo show in 1995 and since then has shown regularly in Houston and throughout Texas. His solo shows include The Museum of East Texas, The Cornish College, and Rice University. He has been a resident artist at both the UCROSS and Ragdale Foundations and counts among his private commissions a 500 sq. ft. mural in Anchorage, Alaska. He is a veteran of the United States Navy Submarine Service and since 1997 has worked as the shop supervisor for the Department of Visual and Dramatic Arts at Rice University in Houston.
