July Open Studios

A member of the InkedUp printmaking group who participated in the Curwen Print Study Centre Certificate course of 2018.

Richard spent his working life with computers and his printmaking work is informed by his interest in science and philosophy. Art is a way to examine what science finds most difficult: sharing the experience of imagination and seeing. The exploration is not just of the mechanics of printmaking but of finding a viewpoint. Each choice of subject must be matched with the capabilities and limitations of the medium. The time expended and the effort of producing each print injects a human component into the results that a computer-based printout could never embody. Richard enjoys the physicality of printmaking processes and the satisfaction of creating tangible art objects.
