Richard Gorman: Living through Paint(ing)
We are delighted to present a survey exhibition by Richard in collaboration with the Contemporary Art Museum of Villa Croce, and Oriental Art Museum E. Chiossone, Genoa, Italy.
Richard Gorman eschews and message or meaning in his work. His sensuous paintings and off-beat shapes appear mobile – as if floating past, ascending and colliding with one another. His use of handmade rice paper for printing comes from his time spent I Japan which greatly influenced his thinking.
“A painting is a conflict with disorder. A painting is not a message to anyone. It may not tell a story, it may not even represent an idea. It means only that it signifies what I spend my time doing – it is the outcome of that process of making and remaking on the flat surface in search of a precarious balance.”
