Recent Work

In Richard's recent work, he is developing new ways of exploring the themes and imagery of his figurative work, by adding three-dimensional formats.

"A new idea is a stepping stone in a river. I take the time to explore the view from each stone in a number of works – and often step backwards as well as forwards, revisiting old ideas with a fresh perspective."
