Statement

“Rhode Island-based painter, Michael Rich, revitalizes a vocabulary of abstract forms and expressions in order to recapture the vividness of lived and experienced nature. His apparently abstract paintings, while bearing a family resemblance to the abstraction of Helen Frankenthaler and others, is built upon both childhood memories and adult experience of specific places on Nantucket Island and central Italy. In his work, Rich seeks to capture both the special quality of a place, but also the intangible richness of repeated, life-long experience of a place in time. Rich’s paintings stand on the frontier of a rediscovery of the experience of the landscape in American art.”

-Robert Mahoney, Critic
