The Artist - Richard Burt
Simple shapes are drawn from complex landscapes. A handful of colours are blended into subtle greens, blues and greys. Wet paint is mixed with dry. Old paint is mixed with new. Layer on layer, scraped off and re-applied. From this, Richard sculpts a literal landscape in paint and at the finish we are left looking at an English landscape that is both powerful and reassuring at the same time. Richard Works from his studio near Salcombe, where he welcomes visitors. He is strongly influenced by the Devon landscape but increasingly enjoys the challenge of commissions from further afield.
