    Lateral thinking

    Richard has asked me to write something to include in his book and says that this may be ‘good or bad.’ This may be so in more ways than one but in fact I have not even contemplated such judgements about him or his work. Generally I try to avoid such rash conclusions.

    What has impressed me is the extent to which Richard is able to integrate his artistic objectives with prevalent social and financial attitudes and arrive at a comfortable philosophical approach to these juxtaposed functions. He has achieved this by donating a percentage of the proceeds of the sale of his works to charity in innovatively conceived formulations that patently assist his marketing but also contribute to the welfare of others.

    Having the experience of an era where the artistic impulse and imagery was rooted in nature, I am fascinated by work such as Richard’s which seems to have the electronic imagery of TV, computer and movie screens at its source. This, together with his technical illustration experience, contributed to a unique approach to the process of making art, that seems in accord with contemporary lifestyle trends.

    I am sure that Richard’s ‘lateral thinking’ approach to the processes of art is going to afford us with much amazement and amusement in future!
