While Richard's prints celebrate traditional techniques they show a refreshing modernity. These drypoints are cut directly into the copper plate, inked up by hand and rolled through an etching press.This skillful process produces an infinite variety of effects ranging from velvety blacks to fine lines. Finally the prints are hand coloured resulting in artworks whose bold simplicty belies their hard won creation. Although trained as a painter, it is in the print world that Richard has excelled. Highlights include assisting artists David Hockney and Jasper Johns. As his style matured he established his own successful artistic career. Regularly selected for such prestigious exhibitions as the Discerning Eye and the Royal Academy Summer Show, his work continues to gain International recognition with recent shows in Japan and Australia.
