Women's clothing and jewelry offer many opportunities to vary color and shapes in art work. Hollis Richardson combines this sensibility with his appreciation of women, native and primitive cultures in his production of modern art. Fine art throughout the ages and around the world has drawn on these subjects, as you can observe in any of the great art museums. Early in life, Richardson lived on the Navajo Reservation, where he taught Navajo children and learned to appreciate the customs of native people. Additionally, he has always had empathetic relationships with women. Women have been the predominate theme of his art throughout his adult life.  


The early Greeks were said to have used wax based colors, but artist grade colored pencils that ensured light fastness, were not developed until the 20th century. Richardson, who has long enjoyed the brilliance of oil paints in creating art, only recently discovered what he could accomplish in prismacolor pencil drawings. He may layer the colors to get a particular shade or look, similar to painting techniques, or he may apply the color more directly. It is so exciting to him, that he rises early each day to get to work at his oversized antique desk, and stays there until late in the evening, taking only short breaks. He returns to that desk in his home near Cleveland day after day, exploring the elements of design, in an effort to create an ever better work of art than the one he did the day before. This is the way he has approached his work for over 70 years. Hollis Richardson's work is all about achieving excellence in art, using the elements of design. Join him in his Cleveland area studio to see the breadth of his modern art.
