Welcome to Charles Randak Art

Born in Edinburgh, I am a graduate from the Glasgow School of Art. My grandfather was an accomplished artist and my most valued possessions are a small selection of books awarded to him as prizes for his art in 1897 from the Glasgow Master Painters Association along with a couple of his paintings. Family legend has it that he ‘hung out’ in Montmartre in Paris in the early 1900’s.

My painting style is direct, unfussed brush strokes and knife work usually in oils on canvas creating what I call  ‘Statement Pieces’ of a reasonable size where the contrasting textures reflect the reality of the scene and the reality of natures colour palette in front of me – avoiding any artificiality in producing  the image.

“I aim to capture real places and moments in time – creating a window on another place which the viewer will find uplifting and will be able to return to it for a visual, mental or spiritual ‘refresh’ (feel good factor) – especially when it is sky, sea or beaches and the combination of all three. I do believe that we are ‘hardwired’ in our genes to receive a calming energy from these locations – probably they meant safety. security and relaxation to our ancestors in dim and distant past and that a painting can equally deliver some of that resonance ?

My first focus is on the West of Scotland where I have had connections over many years although, as you can see, I do indulge myself in other areas ranging from dance to Italy and the Caribbean as they are difficult to resist.

This website covers recent work on the West Coast, the Crinan Canal series and the ‘Gallery’ with a selection other works. Do bear in mind that the images of the paintings often do not capture the real colours or texture of the paintings featured – they do need to be seen in the ‘flesh’.

I have also added two paintings framed in the ‘Contact’ section to show a recommended choice of frame styles although the ‘deep edge’ canvases can be hung without a frame for a more contemporary look.

Contact details are at the end of this website along with how to order a Giclee print. The ‘News/PS’ section will carry any latest updates or stories.

I have also added a ‘Small Paintings’ section to the website which are often ‘studies’ for my larger ‘statement’ pieces.

Feel free to contact me if you have any queries regarding my work – I don’t put all of it on the website.

Hope something catches your eye!

Charles
