Untitled No 33 by Richard Colman

Untitled No. 33 by Richard Colman

Vomit, decapitation, lewd sexual acts â€” what’ s not to like?  While all these are in fact exhibited in the works of Richard Colman, raunchy or offensive would certainly not be adjectives to describe his work.  It is rather an uncomfortable world that he portrays, one in which its characters are seemingly dominated by each other and the world itself, one in which hopelessness reigns supreme (or maybe it’s just me).  Remarkably, he works in watercolor, surprising given the fact straight lines and flat surfaces of his paintings.  Richard hail from Bethesda (which I used to live quite close to for four years) but is now part of the LA scene.

You can check out more of his work on his website, RichardColmanArt.com.
