Richard Adams Gallery


I consider myself an abstract painter. I draw my inspiration from nature, from colours, textures, shapes, surfaces and remembering these, I can at a later date produce them with feeling on canvas. I like my work to have a certain amount of spontaneity to it. This helps me in feeling that I am the guide of the brush rather than the master. I try not to have a pre-conception of what the picture will look like, I'll pick a certain size of canvas, deal with the necessary materials and then let an image grow from this. Of course this also applies in playing jazz improvisation. It helps to allow the feeling of notes you imagine to pass through you rather than trying to arrange them for the listener. In that way, they can play themselves and the painting can really paint itself.
