Meet the artist & maker

Richard exhibits in Yorkshire and London. Ten years ago he completed a PhD looking at the role of the artist in a digital age. The new oil paintings explore abstraction and figuration; gestural marks and colour are used to express the transitory nature of our perceptions. We are bombarded with digital images that purport to depict reality; these paintings attempt to explore the true richness of our consciousness.
