His style is a mix of impressionism, realism and fantasy. He plays with perspectives and the laws of classical art. He works largely from his feelings. His paintings are atmospheric, full of symbolism and mysticism. Often a spherical shape can be discovered. Humans plays a minor role in the whole.
His landscapes almost always arise from fantasy. Sketches and photos support Algera when he works from nature. (model, objects)
He usually paints with oil paint in a simplified palette, on canvas or panel, with a flat brush. By working transparently and in layers, he creates depth. Randolph has been painting for a long time, makes many paintings and murals; almost everything is sold.
He regularly exhibits at home and abroad. In May 2021 he will be exhibiting in St. Louis (US) and previously a.o. in Paris, New York and St. Petersburg.
Algera is Master Restorer and Master Painter, a combination with possibilities!
His Master's degree in Painting certainly has an added value for his restoration company Art-Decor, which he founded in 1994. He has nearly 30 years of experience in conservation and restoration and has been in the business for 40 years.
He founded Galerie Autrevue in 2018, together with his wife Gabriëlle Westra, who is also a Master of Painting. She focuses on portraiture and has been nominated several times for the Dutch Portrait Prize. In the gallery they exhibit their work and that of other talented artists from Holland and abroad. Realistic and surreal paintings combined with sculptures.
Assignments from business and private individuals, both indoors and outdoors, are almost always full of originality. In consultation with the client I deliver a photo presentation of the desired idea. This can be a wall painting, a trompe l'oeil, a wood- or marble imitation, a stencil technique, etc. Total projects can go from floor to ceiling and from wall to wall, including lighting. You will find our decorative work in the catering industry, in shops, offices, beauty centers and sports complexes etc.

His work can be seen at the UMCG, in the Museum Church in Assen and in hotel grand café In de Brouwerij in Leeuwarden etc.
