RW1What type of art work you do? 

Mainly oil paintings on linen, but I use acrylics and watercolour for smaller pieces on paper. 
What inspires you / influences your work? 

There are many different things that influence my work from distortions of foliage from sunlight to the tranquility of reflections in a pond.  I make paintings based in the landscape that have a sense of a parallel world.

 Where did you train / develop your work? 

I trained at Wimbledon School of art and Northumbria University where I did a fine art degree

Why are you taking part in Wandsworth Artists Open House? 

As an opportunity to show my paintings to a wider audience.

What can visitors to your open house look forward to

Visitors can look forward to seeing a range of paintings in different media ranging over the last few years.

What do you like about being an artist living or working in Tooting and Furzedown? 

I find the easy access to the commons as an essential part of a daily ritual to find inspiration. 


Who is favourite artist / art work and why? 

I don’t have a favourite artist but I am inspired by the work of painters as diverse as Patrick Heron to Peter Diog to Bridget Riley

  What new projects do you have planned next?

I am currently showing in the Jerwood Drawing Prize which is the country’s leading drawing prize.

And finally, do you have any exhibitions planned? 

I have a solo show planned with Myerson fine art for February next year.

Thank you.   Richard’s work will be on display at venue  61 in the brochure.
