AMERICANA on my mind.

These are selected images from the ever-expanding AMERICANA Series.

“After her unprecedented cross-country expeditions of social activism. “AMERICANA” is a timely, relevant visual passage crisscrossing a deeply layered America. This exposition is inspired by LaHue’s journeys across a changed “United States”, in the midst of a war and recession and her experience of painting enormous flowers on buildings in 51 cities “from sea to shining sea”.

In “AMERICANA” Random Act illuminates resonant themes of the American psyche. Random Act takes the audience on a dynamic journey through iconic images such as Abraham Lincoln, Gil Scott-Heron and Woody Guthrie. Including their writing, relevant maps, icons and images from her journey, LaHue skillfully creates an entirely unique style that flows through the entire exhibition.

“I wanted to crash together the American experience, dream and psyche and liberate it.”

– Artist Random Act aka Andrea LaHue

Andrea LaHue aka Random Act is widely recognized for monumental botanical paintings and her extraordinary journeys to “uplift, beautify and inspire” main streets across America. The exhibit is a stylistic evolution – a deeper exploration of American iconography layered in paint, portraiture and transfers. Her innovative blend of fine art and street art celebrates American ingenuity and redemption.”
