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 hypothesis unifies the work that catharsis is an instinctive reaction to engage with the archetype of shadow.  The release from the brief 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. Read about Matushevitz in Contemporary Art Curator, Riot Material, Whitehot Magazine, the Huffington Post, and Art and Cake.  Hear the interview by Maeve Doyle, BBC correspondent, A Private View, on Soho Radio, London (2020).

Artist Statement

My artwork reflects the fragility of human connectivity. My portraits and narratives illustrate how our point of view impacts our personal world experience. I explore uncertainty, reflecting the reactive mania or calm surrounding political polarization and the realities of our changing natural environment as reflected in the populous's facial expressions. The images are messy and murky, set in an exaggerated atmosphere, dark and light, created from layers of charcoal, pastel, and spray paint on paper or oil paint on canvas.

Mixed media drawing and painting allow me to use traditional media non-traditionally to visualize the complicated responses to the dichotomies of humanitarianism, globalization, and environmental issues. We are asked to reconcile the conundrums of life with the expected norms of responsible behavior, accomplishment, and success.

My influences are wide and varied: science fiction, folk tales and myths, history, romantic literature, movies, television, and popular culture. I have been especially influenced by Baroque dramatic composition and chiaroscuro, Kerry James Marshall for sentient relationships, William Kentridge, and Basquiat for semiotic relationships between line, narrative, and chaos.
