Richard Lockett (b. 1983, London) studied BA Fine Art at The Slade School of Fine Art and MA Computational Arts at Goldsmiths College. He will graduate from the Royal Academy Schools in 2019.
Richard Lockett’s 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.
