Richard earned his MFA in painting and printmaking and has been a lifelong student of the visual arts, including lengthy study in Japan and Europe. With composition as his main focus, his acrylic work ranges from botanicals to abstracts. He finds inspiration for his abstracts in the play of light and shadows from and on architectural forms in relationship to natural forms. Currently, his work is in six museum stores and five galleries, including Penn Cove Gallery of course.
While many know Richard for his acrylics, you may not realize that the sculpture in the garden by Penn Cove Gallery's side entrance is his work.
Richard will be at Penn Cove Gallery on July 6th and 7th from 10-5:30 pm to discuss the methods and motivations behind his artworks, including acrylic paintings and his sculptures of Cor-ten and stainless steel.
