Richard Freer’s oeuvre is an intimate and personalized representation of natural and urban landscapes. Also exploring portraiture, the colour palette and forms are distinct, vibrant, and breath-taking. Born in Leicester, UK in 1976, Richard’s natural-scrapes provide scope to a novel vision, almost bordering on complete abstraction. From a close-up view to a generic horizon rendition, Richard practices oil paintings, watercolours, and drawings Graduated in Fine Art in 1999, Richard had attended the School of Creative Arts at the University of Hertfordshire. Later he received a master’s degree from De Montfort University in 2004. Impressionist in style, Richards oeuvre constructs a junction of departure from the same ideology. The landscapes appear real formally but digress in the realm of colours. Richard’s attention to small details like a stroke of sunlight, or a small twig, or a reflection over sea marks his distinguishing and original style. And, most importantly, the consistency of the method pervades through his practice. Intuitive and emotional, the responses to the natural surroundings in his paintings are solely dependent on the medium and moment. Notably, it unfolds a substantial relationship between the material and immaterial realms. Richard regularly exhibits at international art exhibitions. At the same time, he also works as an art lecturer and adult education tutor. Exploring mundane objects, his artworks tend to become a part of a larger category of everyday aesthetics. Each region, individual, and moment is significant! Exhibitions. . Degree show, University of Hertfordshire – Hatfield. 1999. . Images of Canada and America, St Albans Abbey – St Albans. 1999. .
