Richard Fox, Vallejo
Native New Yorker, Richard Fox has traveled extensively in Europe and the U.S., and tries bringing his New Yorker’s melting pot sensibility to whatever he paints. Richard says, “If I had my way I literally would paint a globe.” Concentrating on honing my skills as a draughtsman in the media of watercolor and oil, I sketched and painted consistently over a 20-year period, and also created the covers and illustrations for the interiors of books for major book publishers.
“What most inspires me is color. Vivid color harmonies affirm life both witnessed and experienced. It gives me great joy to share that passionate sense I feel whenever I encounter contrasts of color and picturesque details in my wanderings. I work from memory and sketches, and also in front of the motif whenever possible”.
Intensity for me is all– allied with that embracing of lively color is a diversity of subject matter. Observing and recording my impressions of parks, theatre, music—these are my themes and what drives me on. My paintings have been exhibited in New York, Boston, Brussels, Richmond, and Houston, and are represented in the collection of the Williamsburg Art & Historical Center, Brooklyn, New York, and in private collections in New York, San Francisco, Paris, and Luxembourg.
