– Scutching Tool, 2015 –
This post is dedicated to Nikki Light
Ashley Lily Scarlett and I have started a new blog called Between Scarlett and Guest. It’s a dialogue in pictures. You can read/ eavesdrop on the conversation here.
These are starting to be more like paintings with photographic elements rather than the other way around. I’m totally fascinated with your progression, Richard.
And I learnt a new word too. Thank you. 🙂
Yes, they are – still all photography though. Really glad you like them. Thanks very much, Ashley. You’re welcome 🙂
Richard is a good Worker, he’s a worthy representant of working class …!!! And about me it’s a compliment not again a joke …!!! A little bit perhaps, i’m rascal …!!! Don’t be angry dear Richard, it’s my heart who’s speaking …!!!
Ha, ha, thanks so much, Laurent!
We don’t have enough scutching nowadays! We should all go out and scutch some more! 🙂
Make sure to use your swingletree!
Love this feeling of multiple layers– like multiple layers of reality.
Really glad you like it, Ellen – that’s a really interesting observation – much appreciated.
Really enjoying this style you have developed the last 5 are fantistic
Thanks very much, Leon. Much appreciated and I’m really glad you like them. Yes, I’m quite into it. More to come…
Gotta get me one of those-scrutching tools;) Clearing the way, It sure is working for you here.
🙂 Thanks so much, Elena!
Toddling over to google all about the tool of the moment . . . Love your version!
Ha, ha, thanks very much, Patti!
Almost 3 dimensional. Awesome!
Thanks very much, Karen.
This is just beautiful, I could almost eat the paint! I love this series.
Thanks so much. Are you slightly synaesthetic? (is that a word?). I am slightly (more than slightly sometimes, depending on how tired I am etc) and I know a few other people who are – it’s great fun. Really glad you like them.
Hi Richard, no I don’t think I’m, synaesthetic, (I googled it!) I can see how it would help with your work.
I love the contrast between this style and your street portraits. It reminds me of Richter–the precise realism of his photo-inspired portraits and the complete abstraction of some of his other work. Really great, Richard!!!
Thanks so much, Jennifer! Richter is such an interesting painter – he, Polke and Kiefer are the giants of German 80s painting for me. Yes, I think my stuff hangs together OK, because it’s all coming from the same place – all photographic and all found in the street. Thanks for making my ego extremely happy!!
Again, so intrigued by the composition. The shadow / darker lines, tones give amazing substance to this.
Thank you so much. I love putting these together – it’s really a lot of fun – I’ve just completed a collaboration with a painter and I found it difficult to stop working on the images – like very addictive problem solving.
