Biography

Randi Matushevitz is an American multidisciplinary artist. Her installations, paintings, mixed media drawings, and videos have been exhibited and collected nationally and internationally. Her artwork is found in the permanent collections of the Museum of Art and History (MOAH), Lancaster, CA; Cleveland Clinic, Las Vegas; Las Vegas Art Museum at the Marjorie Barrick Museum of Art, University of Nevada, Las Vegas; The Brooklyn Art Library, Brooklyn, NY; and Enter Art Foundation, Berlin.  

Matushevitz's artwork reflects the fragility of human connectivity. A figurative artist, her portraits, narratives, and videos, illustrate how our point of view impacts our personal world experience. In a universal conversation that explores the commonality of uncertainty within the mania and calm surrounding daily life. The images are messy, murky layers of entangled marks creating a dense surface that mimics the human condition. The parameters of her artwork include themes of socio-psychological human connection and formal artistic variety of visual experience.  The work is unified by the hypothesis that catharsis is an instinctive reaction to engage with the archetype of shadow.  The release from the temporary exposure to the abject and uncomfortable, the uncertain, from a safe and ultimately healing space. 

 

Recent exhibitions include Helms Design District, Culver CIty Arts Foundation, Future Gaze: Justin Bower and Randi Matushevitz, Coagula Curatorial, Los Angeles, CA, We Are Humanity, Giudecca Arts District, Venice, Italy, and Highlights from the Permanent Collection at the Museum of Art and History.

My practice spans drawing, installation, painting, and video. Each project is a glimpse into the psychological, physical, and imagined.  I amplify perceived conflict between inner states of being and real-world experience, actualizing a dense surface that mimics entanglement and instability.  Traversing the edges of meaning in a conversation that exists beyond gender, culture, religion, and language,
