About Richard Owen

About the artwork

Richard Owen's practice is informed by an exploration of colour and shape, as well as the complex and subtly expressive nature of oil paint. Starting out painting smaller-scale, figurative pieces – cityscapes and still lifes – it was a realization that what interested him was “the contribution of colour and composition to the mood of the painting, rather than any particular subject matter,” which proved to be a turning point in his practice. Reducing the subject over time to simple motifs and pictorial devices, such as a horizon line or a stylised shadow, Owen realised that “representational content in painting had become a limiting factor,” pushing him to abandon it completely.
