Behind the Gold Veil - Rande Cook

Rande Cook
July 25 – August 21
All works available immediately.

In Behind the Gold Veil, Rande Cook explores the metaphorical value and material possibilities of gold and its relationship to tradition, narrative, and spirituality. Rande Cook’s artistic practice reflects his awareness of the complex relationship between his cultural traditions and the modern world, and his embrace of new mediums captures his interest in reviving traditional narratives in a new light.

Gold’s irresistible luster is inextricably tied to the development of countless civilizations, and it has played a central role in shaping the landscape of modern society. By combining the symbolic value of gold with traditional narratives, forms, and subjects, Rande elevates his own cultural heritage and places it within a long artistic tradition that has embraced the material as a proxy for spiritual enlightenment.      Please continue reading here...
