Richard William Duncan "Spring Blossom" Oil on canvas, 13½" x 17½"
Richard William Duncan is an Irish artist from Dublin, whose paintings, we have just recently started to exhibit at the Jorgensen Gallery. His paintings are characterised by his use of heavy impasto, broad brushstrokes and vibrant colour combinations, which gives his still life paintings an expressionistic and energetic aspect. Although his paintings are usually still life paintings of flowers, the subject matter is often only just the starting point for a demonstration of the exuberance involved in the act of painting, which results in these eye-catching semi-abstract and painterly compositions.
