Enjoy sculpture and installation, because it is fun, mostly! This page contains images of artwork, as well as research, from between 2010 to 2021. Below you will see examples of exhibitions, in the form of installations with objects and slide photography, and documentation of residencies as well as studio experimentation.
A list of materials for you from the above image: broken car suspension coils, cactus offcuts, a glass shelf, Vaseline and blue metallic spray paint. Additionally, some yellow cable ties as well as pink Tyrozet throat lozenges and parts from a home pull-up bar.
A mounted cluster of objects placed upon a badly plastered wall. They include the base of an old desktop computer monitor and two colourful headscarves, which boast blooms of red, gold, green, blue, black and pink. Furthermore, fitted into the structure of the monitor base, are two clay objects: a bent thumb and a penis.
As an artist Richard loves putting together objects like this. They are arrangements that could fall apart at any point. He thinks of them as assembled and precarious offerings, which can be edited at any time. But they also achieve clarity when compiled efficiently. The same thought process goes into his painting practice.
As an editor, Richard strives to get at the same clarity through copy-editing, and sound and video production. After all, everything will fall apart if it is not held together properly. Furthermore, whilst up and tangible, make sure that you enjoy sculpture and installation.
