Paul Richards - Crisis of Identity

22 January - 28 February 2009

After numerous sell-out shows, Connaught Brown is delighted to announce its tenth exhibition of Paul Richards' works, which presents the artist's latest reflections in a substantial group of twenty new portraits. In a style bordering between abstract and figurative, Richards mixes colours directly on the canvas, retaining an instinctive freedom and freshness. He seeks to capture the essence of life and the individual dynamism that emanates from all things. The figures emerging from the thick, shiny oil seem to breathe in front of us.
