Richard Lannowe Hall

As a yachtsman Richard is impacted by the ever changing force of wind, sea and tide. He sees his place in this massive element as small and fragile. His survival on the sea depends, not on what impact he makes on it but how he can make meaning of the apparent chaos, accept it, flex to it and maintain headway to achieve his goal. This process is echoed in his method of painting. He observes and paints what he has experienced. When Richard looks at a scene that attracts him, he responds viscerally. Seeing a Whistler or Turner seascape or a Cuming's beach scene is as much part of his reality as is what is out there in front of him. The paintings are primarily gouache and mixed media on paper. After the primary layers he builds further layers with the use of mediums like Gum Arabic and varnish and works over it, sometimes in as many as ten layers. Richard has work in private collections world wide.
