ÆSTHETICS:
Greek: perceptive, esp. in feeling
French: perceive, feel
English / General: the theory or philosophy of taste; the science of the beautiful in nature and art, esp. that treating of the expression and appreciation of beauty.
First used in the Latin form in 1750 to designate the science of the sensuous knowledge, the goal of which is beauty, in contrast to logic, the goal of which is truth.

artist:Doug Simionson 1989

Randolph Craft began his professional career in the arts in Honolulu in early 1965. Three days after arrival in Honolulu/Waikiki, knowing no one, with $17. and one guitar between he and his singing partner, Forrest Geiger, they were entertaining 700 people at Fort Derussy in Waikiki as the "new folk sensation," "Randy & Forrest."

As they say, "the rest is history..."
Three years and some 50 jobs later, a working full-time student, and north shore surfer, working for tips in the restaurant business, he was inspired by John Lennon's "Working Class Hero." He tied his bandanna tightly around his head, slid on his denim shirt and working gloves, and started welding.

Since then, working with his then apprentice brother, Greg Craft - private homes, municipal buildings, massive resort developments, and galleries around the world have received his powerful and fluid sculptures and stunning original process copper patina paintings.

In 1980, after meeting Buckminster Fuller, he passed the torches to his younger brother, Greg, and pursued his new mission to teach Buckminster Fuller's  Generalized Principles of the Universe to the inhabitants of "SpaceShip Earth."

Randolph Craft never left the art... just took on new "projects" in life. This incredible work is still available via this website or by private commission.

POSTULATES OF CREATIVITY

I have to clear my mind
of what I have learned from others
before I can think clearly
about what I naturally am thinking

I have to have faith in the human
as the highest form of life
to believe that his or her thinking naturally
is the highest form of creativity and thought

Creativity is an entity that is relative
to nothing
Creativity just is
and is
its own reason for being

The sophistication of creativity
applied to technology
is relative to the sophistication
of that technological input

The value
of that which is created
is relative to the value
of the reason
for which the process is used
