About Richard Hoey

About the artwork

This work is part of a collection entitled 'Tristes Tropiques,' in which Hoey explores ideas relevant to him based on his experience of living in Brazil.... which couldn’t be more different than England, his native home. As a child, Hoey was fascinated with the images conjured up around the idea of far off lands evoking the promise of adventure and the exotic, but the reality is quite different to those childhood imaginings. Those idealised images have stayed with the artist, but they are now obscured through witnessing the signs of industrial pollution, capitalism, excessive crime, and massive inequality. These factors are challenging and are intensified against the intoxicating backdrop of the natural beauty of the landscape. It is this tension that Hoey investigates in his work by bringing together seemingly opposite elements of natural beauty and the scars of human exploitation.
