Contemporary Art Fair – Surrey

From Friday 15 to Sunday 17 March I was exhibiting a range of framed original oil paintings and framed / mounted Ltd Edition Hand Embellished (Gold & silver leaf with gesso texture – varnished) gicleé A2 prints on canvas at the Contemporary Art Fair at Sandown Park Racecourse in Esher, Surrey.

It was extremely busy, hugely successful and lots of fun! Esher is a very beautiful place and I was extremely impressed!

If you would like to purchase one of the remaining paintings or prints, call / SMS me on 07813 138680, email me at, or message me on Facebook.

I made several friends, met some good contacts, had some great feedback and very kind comments in my Visitor’s Book. Here’s one that was particularly nice: “Richard is an incredible Artist. I was speechless to discover this beautiful work is done with merely a knife. A very talented man.”

Newbury Contemporary Art Fair next from 10 to 12 May. Let me know if you would like a complementary invite…

Starving Artist, burning the midnight oil and candle at both ends... The style of my artwork is modern, yet classical. Predominantly figurative, the tendency of my artwork is towards carefully composed anonymity, capturing the emotions and self belief of the subject, rather than characteristic individual representation. The creation of figurative artwork not only depicts the emotions of the artist, it transforms the artist's emotions. Art should be proudly displayed, carefully scrutinized, and in order to benefit to the fullest extent possible, it should be understood from the perspective of its creator - the artist. My figurative artwork is sensual and my ballerinas and dancers are passionate, moody and emotional. My preferred lighting, shading and contrast are dramatic. I simply adore light and am fascinated with its arguably undue influence on any subject. I delve extensively between the extremes of highlights and lowlights in my artwork in a chiaroscuro technique, occasionally minimalist, often leaving the viewer's mind to complete the picture and to add depth. I always strive to create an atmosphere in whatever I produce, at the highest possible quality and using either a knife or brush and a very limited colour palette of oil paint or pastels, usually alla prima, mixing and blending only on the canvas!
