REID RICHARDSON

1/1

A tree is a powerful symbol. It can represent protection and wisdom, personify a human being or teach us about our past. A tree has been used for centuries in many cultures as a symbol of hope and connection with the divine. Its branches outstretch like nurturing arms bearing fruit to give new life. Its roots dig deep within the soil affirming its rich history. We grow as a tree does, planting ourselves firmly in the ground of modern society and evolving with the ever-changing seasons.

Reid’s most recent work focuses on the various metaphors a tree provides. “Family Tree” is a body of work concerned with the idea of what a family is and how we are all connected. He has combined the abstract nature of cumulous clouds, his favorite subject matter, with the structure of a tree to create a visual mystery.

"Through extraordinary visual imagery, Reid Richardson communicates profound visions of hope for the future and nostalgia of his youth. His distinct color palette, subject matter and technique resonate with a growing audience. Having an appetite for self-exploration in a modern world, his intention is to exploit the hidden meaning in the simple beauties of life’s nuances. His brush is attracted to create bold images of poetic skies and surrealistic landscapes. His work has developed over the past years into a complex personal vocabulary of imagery that stirs emotion and engages the intellect.


His work transcends the boundaries of any particular painting style, creating a unique beauty which engages the intellect as well as the emotions of the viewer.” –Christine Pabst
