New paintings, photograph and objects by Richard Lockett

 

Richard Lockett’s (b. 1983, London) practice proposes the viewer to cast a different eye on the familiar and on the magic of the mundane. His abstract paintings and drawings can be perceived as emotional and meta-linguistic thought patterns refusing a one-dimensional reading. Their most crucial aspect is the rhythmic deconstruction of the forms established in his sculptural work. Allegorical arrangements form a fragile visual language connecting different memories and scenarios for the artist. What is the object that touches and makes them concrete, part of the physical world. They wake up after dreaming. In the immediacy of the bed linen they can function.
