Victor Richardson

Victor Richardson was born in Belfast, Northern Ireland in 1952. He moved to County Cork in 1974, where he has lived for most of the last 30 years,
except for brief spells in England and France. He has worked as a professional artist since 1980 and has exhibited widely in Ireland, Britain and America. His work has been included in the annual shows of the RHA, RUA and RWA.

 
Obvious influences in his paintings are Seurat, Bonnard and Klimt, but over time he has adapted elements of Impressionism and Pointillism to develop his own distinctive style, giving a fresh and vivid approach to traditional imagery. He has always been drawn to the possibilities of using a simple motif, for example, trees and water, which are often the raw materials of
his landscapes, and then exploring the play of colour, texture and design, which can transform the most mundane scene. His interpretation is unabashedly romantic. His world is not as it truly is, but how it ought to be.

 

“What immediately strikes one on viewing Richardson’s paintings is their sheer effervescence: they bubble with life. Like the bubbles in a glass of champagne, the colours pop and dance across the canvas. It is this intense liveliness which renders the work so happy and life-enhancing.” Sile Connaughton-Deeny DUBLIN 2009.
