Hollis Richardson's Contemporary Modern Art
He has a large body of work of both paintings and drawings that is representational, though not realistic art. Artistically, his focus is on an expressive use of color and distortion. His paintins are decidedly distinctive. His style is recognizable regardless of the genre or medium. While accepting influences from other artists, his work is informed by his own experiences with the world at large, including people and his inner nature. Richardson creates contemporary works of modern art that come from deep within his soul and communicates through the esthetic of his paintings, feelings and ideas that viewers relate to emotionally. It reflects who he is as a person, an open, honest individual, who has clear boundaries, accepts everyone as equals with empathy, and who enjoys seeing the positive and humorous side of life. Collectors report that his paintings conjures up memories, feelings of sorrow, hope, and amusement. ENGAGING WITH MODERN ART The study of art can be a tool to rediscover feelings about the past and the present lurking in your subconscious. As you experience the artwork you may reconnect to your intuition, and find a pathway to your own feelings that leads to an ongoing process of self-discovery and understanding. These can be important steps of constructing a future for yourself that is affirming and constructive.
Whatever the level of your engagement might be with the artwork, it can have a positive impact. It is artwork for your home or office and for your soul. Surround yourself with artwork that speaks to you and you will demonstrate to others aspects of your personality and make a statement as to who your true self is. At the same time, you can transform and beautify your interior environment that makes it a pleasant place to be. You do not have to be rich and famous to become a collector of original art. You do need to understand that purchasing good art is an investment in yourself, much as spending money on yourself on other items, such as your home or other things of importance to you. You are also encouraging an artist and the art community. If you truly like Hollis Richardson’s work, start by buying small pieces within your budget. Many people surprise themselves to find they love the work so much they come back again and again.
