Artist Statement



Richard is an acclaimed International Artist recently returned to the USA. Richard has lived in many Countries. ”The last being Thailland.
He started his art studies at a very young age at the John Herron Art Institute In Indianapolis, Indiana and then later at the Art Institute of Chicago
Richard has lived in many countries, painting, and playing music.
Mr Wynne has exhibited in Thailand, the United States, Spain, Argentina, Kuwait, Korea, Ihdia, and other Countries.
Sometimes perhaps I say too much about my self but maybe it helps people understand what motivates my work.
For your information I've lived in 8 different countries and have been around the world 5 times.
I speak a few different languages, some very well; others not so well.
By the way I am not a workaholic as I don't consider what I do work. I enjoy life too much.
I forgot to say I am also a weight lifter as lifting weights is my Zen. When I am troubled the concentration it takes to lift makes me calm.
I guess my page will probably be a little different from what people expect.
Sorry I have not been uploading new work as I have been in the Hospital. But hope to do more soon

Some Press Reviews :

Arab Times:
“ ….most of the impressions are scary, some
show signs of fear”

Arab Times:
“Color plays a dominant role in Richard’s works. Pastels are soft and soothing, vibrant shades evoke varying emotions- from concern to dismay. And the grays show the disturbing presence of turmoil in our world”….

Kuwait News:
….“He is reluctant to discuss and sidesteps direct questions by suggesting viewers interpret them as they choose”.
“This is not difficult to do as they have an impact that cannot fail to provoke feelings from even the most inexperienced art critic”.

Arab Times:
“Painting is a compulsion, a need for self-expression and a desire to communicate with the outside world through the mediums of color, styles, and forms”…

Bangkok Post:
“The artist offers a different look at things by the unique use of different mediums in the painting….
Uses ink, watercolor, acrylic, oil, and shirt dye to achieve a striking contrast in textures and colors.”

Thairott :
Beautiful, strong, outspoken paintings…..

Thailand Business Manager :
Richard Wynne depicts his personal impressions of the Thai lifestyle and its cultural values, as well as the tourist and nightlife attractions with great clarity and feeling.
Richard mixes his materials and frequently uses watercolor, pastel, acrylic and oil paint in the same painting with an interesting effect and feeling --
