Art is to offer to those who know how to see and be moved a poetic vision through an interpretation which is personal to me.
Richard started drawing at the age of 16. Always in search of an absolute truth, artistic creation turned out to be an answer to his questions. He became a student of Jean-Georges Inca, a painter who is concerned with the clash of civilizations. In 1999 his watercolours were remarked upon and he received numerous awards. Richard now uses a mixed media of acrylic, oil and graphite. While keeping the subjects themselves in watercolour, he offers more material and more contrast by using these materials. A nature lover, especially of his native Provence, Richard draws inspiration from the reflection of nature. A diversity of landscapes, daily scenes and images that challenge him are all subjects that appear on the canvas with complete freedom of expression. Free from all academic constraints, he expresses his feelings of the moment. In addition to his acrylic and watercolour painting, Richard is also an accomplished guitarist, and the viewer will sometimes find musical themes in his paintings. Expressed or not, this sensitivity is never absent, and nourishes each of his paintings.
Self taught, Richard is inspired by the Impressionist and Post-Impressionist masters as William Turner and Richard Parkes Boningon (English watercolourists). He finds in this artistic movement the changing and ephemeral appearance of moments captured at the instant. His postmodern-impressionist approach consists of creating an ambiance of colours dotted with lights. Between curves vertical lines he creates a "world apart", a highly structured world. His works are full of emotions and vibrations, and his vision of the south carries the viewer into a sunny and warm world. His quest for absolute truth paves the way for an intense lyricism.
