He believes all good artwork has an abstract quality and that is always his artistic goal, no matter if he is painting, drawing or sculpting. He is a master of artistic expression, the deliberate use of distortion, and the elements of design: line, shape, space, form, pattern, texture, value, color and positive and negative space. He is attentive to the principles of good composition: use of contrast, emphasis, proportion, rhythm, movement, variety and unity.
Richardson particularly enjoys following an intuitive form of art. He allows his imagination to flow freely by not making a detailed plan. He begins with general ideas about shapes and colors. The image evolves as the creative process progresses. He focuses on the elements of design, but the content of his artwork is subjective. Today, he has no interest in precise depictions of nature, but aspires to simplify and present the subject’s essence while creating good design.
