Richard Kattman Artist Bio:
Painting and drawing are my passion. I paint large abstract paintings plein- air in fields or by the sea close to home, and in sunny vineyards far away in Tuscany, Italy. My paintings and drawings are about nature, man's relationship to nature, man's nature, and the nature of painting and drawing. Through color, line, and the creation of form, I search for beauty and meaning in the universe. My abstract canvases contain movement, energy, slash, spatter, thrust, and space. My paintings are as solid as concrete, the colors dense and impenetrable, rich, modeled and thick with texture. Through drawing, meditation, and comprehensive study, I begin to see clearly. Obsessed with the works of DaVinci, Monet, and DeKooning, they help me gain an understanding of artists’ minds and artworks. I read Tolstoy, Thomas Hardy, and John Steinbeck. I listen to Beethoven, Bob Dylan, and The Rolling Stones. Standing on the shores of the Atlantic in Rhode Island, watching the waves is enlightening. In Tuscany, with paint brush in hand, the Sun beats down on my shoulders, and the Muse inspires.
