Darker Than Light

This series is based on the golden age of the Dutch Masters still-life painnting. This roughly spanned the 17th century, during and after the Eighty Years War (1568-1648) for Dutch independance.  During this period artists started to expore the everyday rather than religious iconography.  

Richard has had personal interest in this period and inparticular its dark aesthetic. Darkness appears to peal back and reveal the detail of its subject. This project is still on going and a full curatorial statement will be posted soon.  Below appear some full frame and some  crops from the body of work. 

A solo exhibition  at SUNSTUDIOS  will take place in March 2020.
