    Over the past several years I have followed the career of industrial abstract artist Randy Wix in Pueblo, CO which is one of America's great industrial landscapes with the towers of the Colorado Fuel & Iron (CF&I) blast furnaces as a reminder of the largest consolidated steel mill west of the Mississippi. CF&I built the West and like the pioneers and captains of industry of the day, Randy navigates his storytelling with a mix of design, innovation, engineering, construction, and curation. Unlike your traditional studio artist, Randy takes on the role of contractor when he brings his found objects to life in his powerful industrial masterworks. 'The Art of Randy Wix' is the first in a series of new books aimed at capturing the essence of the emotional magnitude of the industrial revolution and its powerful remnants that dot our landscape today. The book highlights composition, texture, and his own language known as 'Wixing' which evokes the written score of a previous... More > civilization --- appearing very familiar, yet unknown and distant. New objects that speak the language of the 'future of the past' are found by Randy almost daily and they become part of his family until the appropriate context unfolds for a new life as a beacon of our industrial past. This magical process is how the artist shares his passion for the world around us and each work evolves independently and driven by emotion. The creative steps are never the same and the chapters of each new work evolve as the artist assembles the story. Whether you are a student of our great industrial past, or passionate about great abstract art and engaging storytelling, 'The Art of Randy Wix' is a great addition to one's understanding of art, history and culture in America.< Less
