After working successfully in clays, artificial stone, and bronzes, Randy began crafting intriguing and magical sculptures in wire mesh.
Each piece of Shadow Sculpture is uniquely created. No molds are used: Randy does all his work with his hands and a few simple, hand-made tools.
These are forms created in wire screen that cast shadows on the wall.
When lit with a light source, the shadows sometimes have more details than the sculpture itself. Randy’s ability to see the subtleties in the human form makes his work stand out. These shadow sculptures have been sweeping the United States and the world for the past few years.
Randy Cooper is a force among America’s contemporary artists. His Shadow Sculptures already highlight many private collections throughout the world.
