Richie

Statement

Working with mixed media to create assemblage wall art, my current body of work is abstract, colorful, and textural. I approach art-making with a purely aesthetic and creative method, meaning I allow my mind's eye to envision a desirable composition and then find the materials needed to create it. For me, this results in the most expressive and effective way to produce a meaningful work. 

Operating from my apartment in Long Island City, New York, I tend to work on projects as ideas occur. A mental, emotional, and even physical need to create arouses my spirit, and that is when I work best. My work is relief-style sculpture which incorporates everyday items and found objects. As I create in this style, patterns of color and texture develop, and symmetry and asymmetry become especially pronounced. In some pieces I use grid-like modules, while in others I allow more freedom of movement by placing assorted pieces in rhythmic arrangements.

 The assemblages I make incorporate a concoction of media, primarily everyday items and found objects. The act of creating art from mundane materials presents a stimulating challenge that provides a basis for my motivation. At some point, a profound conversion occurs. As I build my pieces using techniques such as laser cutting, surface treatments, and joining methods, I see this transformation slowly take place. This process of subliminal metamorphosis of materials drives me to continue in my current series.
