Question for the artist?

Artist's description:


Billions of faces, not one the same. That amazes me. This is true with all things, unless we clone them. For some reason I think we should not mess with it. They are different for a reason.

Words and Art by Rich Ray

Emotional Process

With each piece of artwork I create there are several emotions present. I look at the face or figure to determine if there is a story to be told. Inevitably, there always is. I am drawn to that person in an instinctual way.

Since I don't know them personally, my process starts to expose their hidden dimensions. The soul behind the beauty. Each layer of texture adds depth to that person. Whether it is an acrylic painting, ink painting, or nature photography, all art of which I create separately.

I have seen so many emotions surface that were not there in the original photo. Sometimes fear is exposed or joy, ecstasy or sorrow. We are all human. It matters not what our outward appearance is. The soul is always striving to reveal itself just under the surface.

My hope is other people view my art as a vehicle for emotions to roam freely. The vulnerability of the person in the artwork allows us to be vulnerable. I am aware that others vulnerability is a teacher. I respect it, I cherish it and I admire it. What do you see and feel when you view the picture?

Technical Process

Each piece of art is crafted with layers of different textures and mediums. This process has been the focus of my work for the past three years. It involves acrylic painting, photography, inks, oil sticks and pastels.

The final art work is designed in a photo editor program. This technology gives me creative freedom to add in my abstract paintings and photography.

The finished piece is printed on either archival paper or canvas. *Artwork includes a certificate of authenticity. *Item ships separately. Please allow 2-3 weeks for delivery. delivery) Artwork includes a certificate of authenticity.
