Richard Morrissey is a London-based artist working with oils, acrylics, charcoal and pencil. His paintings are primarily abstract but usually contain ambiguous figuration or graffiti-like gestural marks. He has been featured at several London exhibitions.
“I am interested in using rapid movement in paint application coupled with marks and the use of words or motifs that are emotionally significant to me. The pieces themselves show the juxtaposition of a solid and stable enamel colour base against a more abstract and fluid acrylic body. I painted each piece as if working on canvas, working quickly, with feeling.”
