Richmond 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.
