Excerpts From Reviews

A PERSONAL AND CULTURED RENAISSANCE:

THE DRAWINGS OF RANDY KLINGER

  “The hand acts out a lesson in style, the pencil flows on the paper, isolates and defines, becomes thicker forming oases, frames the light, dictates the perspective. The drawings of Randy Klinger are not mere exercises, they are the demonstration of undeniable nerve, the signature of an artist who wants to show the scope and depth he has reached in his studies. The exhibition is dedicated to a series of drawings of impeccable formal weight, faces magnified by the sparing incision of hand, softened by sfumato, exulted by the energy which springs forth uncontained, punctuated by elements which add themselves to the overall structure: arms, parts of bodies, geometric definitions of volume. An unusual and refined aesthetic encounter in which Klinger shows himself to be an artist who makes no compromises and, with a love of inner analysis, poetic, yet never academic. He is  an author of rich expression, this American who is a citizen of the world and lives in Scotland.”

Dottore Mimmo Coletti, La Nazione

“This gentle man has produced some gentle drawings; what they may lack slightly in depth of tone they make up for in scrutinising detail. Each portrait displays a sitter at rest it seems, contemplative in mood but relaxed in pose. I sit back in one of the lounge chairs, flick through the pages of a nearby book and find myself mirroring these nearly perfect pencil images.”
