Statement

Richard Vergez is a visual/sound artist. He employs manual techniques such as tape splicing and photomontage to create minimal and abstract contemporary works, with a style firmly rooted in the Avant-Garde. His visual work makes great use of white space and abstract structures, using mixed medias such as collage, printmaking, found objects, and unconventional mark making. He studies graphic design at FAU and is well-versed in creating commercial art as well, ranging from magazines to album covers. Richard records and performs under the name Drowning the Virgin Silence, a musical project which explores electro-acoustic and post-industrial music, through the use of prepared tapes and manipulated sound. Vergez's recent concentration is scoring for modern dance as part of the Psychic Youth Inc. collective.
