Richard Friend


Richard Friend I never have a clear idea of what a finished painting is going to look like. They evolve organically during their creation. My inspiration comes from the Kent countryside and childhood holidays spent in Cornwall. I’m very interested in narratives that are intrinsically linked to the countryside such as local history and folklore. I like to hint at mysterious happenings within the paintings, however, my stories exist only within the paintings and reveal themselves only in the closing stages of their making.


I discovered colour when I was in my first year at Liverpool. Since then it has caused me no end of anguish. Recently I have become very interested in the physicality of the paint surface as well, which has lead to some rather unusual additions to my painting materials.


I completed my foundation course at the Kent Institute of Art and Design where I was awarded the Eric Hurren prize and then went on to Liverpool Art School to study for a BA (Hons) in Fine Art Painting. Since graduating, I have continued to paint but it was in 2000 that I decided to concentrate on becoming a full time painter.


I have exhibited at a number of galleries around the UK and represent myself at various Art Fairs. My work is in private and corporate collections in the UK, USA, Ireland, France and Australia.
