Paul Richards - New Works

12 March - 5 April 2003

This exhibition will present the eagerly awaited opportunity to view the most recent paintings of Paul Richards.  Richards, inspired by his profound experience of human passion and desire, has been working with a previously unseen creative intensity on this new series of portrait heads, nudes and still-lifes. The portraits and nudes in this exhibition witness the progression of the artist's relationship with the female figure represented.  From mutual desire, through love requited, tinged yet heightened by a sense of foreboding, to the frailty and desolation of rejection: all are captured in these works.
