Randa Magdi’s painting practice investigates portraits.
She is influenced by Fauvism. Passionate about and obsessed with colour, she avoids restrictions to the rules or methods of art convention.
She recently re-investigated her love for art, and painting and is a prolific painter, who creates work daily.
Rich hues and patterns ordain asymmetrical irregular faces. Randa verbally expresses the following: “freaks of nature, I feel we all have uneven faces.”
Past experience in corporate video, SBS TV and Film Australia gave her a love for facial expressions and pattern making.
Her playful irregularity of the human face and love for neo-expressionist and poly-chromatic style seem unorthodox but portray a festive imagination and attraction.
Randa is not interested in perfection and is intent on the naivety of her practice as pure creativity beyond her control.
