Somers Randolph was born in 1956 in Boston, MA. He was raised in Washington D.C. and, after attending Exeter, went to Pietrasanta, Italy and the Corcoran School of Art. He graduated from Princeton in 1979 with a degree in Art History. Randolph then spent twelve years in Santa Barbara and seven in Nashville. He has lived in Santa Fe, NM since 1997.
Randolph’s sculpture is deceptively simple. His forms resonate on a subconscious level, as his vibrant spirals, continuous knots, and woven curves awaken our innermost selves. After three decades of chipping, sawing, sanding, and polishing stone, his works are in major collections and museums worldwide.
“I am spoiled now. I still get to spend my time making shapes. I carve what I like and if someone wants it, they buy it. I’ve been fortunate all along that people want what I like to carve. If that is success then I’ve been extremely successful. What could be better?”
