Richmond Burton is an abstract painter and printmaker, actively writing and creating.
Burton’s colorful and harmonious paintings and graphic work are composites of his vocabulary of organic shapes that flow together in undulating patterns resulting in unique multi-colored abstractions. With a background in architecture, many of Burton’s paintings stress visual order. Hard-edged geometrical forms dominated his early canvases, but later a more organic patterning emerged, as seen in this work.
With more than 40 solo exhibitions at important galleries and work in the collections of the National Gallery of Art, the Metropolitan Museum, MOMA, Harvard University’s Fogg Museum, the Art Institute of Chicago, and countless others, Burton is firmly established as a blue chip artist.
