Randy Hage- Sim City

0 Comments 09 October 2013

Video interview with sculptor Randy Hage by Daniel Rolnik.

By Daniel Barron


Do an image search on Randy Hage and you could be forgiven for thinking you were looking at a series of banal photographs of dilapidated New York storefronts.  Look at little more closely.  It ain’t SoHo.  For over twenty-five years, Hage has been creating, models, sets, and props for TV and film, but his passion projects have lied in assembling meticulous recreations of the iconic structures and communities of New York City that are gradually being wiped away through a process of gentrification large-scale redevelopment.  It’s a process he hope can commemorate and preserve the fading soul of the city.  In preparation for Hage’s recent residency at the Flower Pepper Gallery in Pasadena art critic Daniel Rolnik interviewed him in his studio as part of his ongoing video blog series Hi, I’m Daniel TV.
