"I paint and play jazz violin. The two go hand in hand.


I consider myself an abstract painter, drawing inspiration from nature, colours, textures, shapes, surfaces and remembering these, I can at a later date produce them with feeling on canvas."


Richard Adams likes his work to include spontaneity so he feels that he is the guide of the brush rather than the master. He'lI try not to have a pre-conception of what the picture will look like, rather, to let an image grow. In that way he believes, a painting can really paint itself. 


Richard is represented by OREXART, Auckland.
