TOPAZ ARTS Visual Arts Program is pleased to present Dark Forest – a solo exhibition of large-scale oil paintings and immersive installation by Todd Bradford Richmond, on view March 4 to April 1, 2017 at TOPAZ ARTS. Viewing hours are by appointment – please email firstname.lastname@example.org
Richmond’s new works explore the inner voice of uncertainty and the unknown in his solo exhibition Dark Forest – a new series of large-scale oil paintings and immersive installation. Using light as a medium in Laser Forest, blue lasers create an experiential forest of light where viewers can wander through and interact with enigmatic light and atmosphere. Dark Forest (100″ x 160″, oil on canvas, 2016), Painted Forest (100″ x 160″, oil on canvas, 2016) and Negative Forest (100″ x 160″, vinyl, 2016), are a series of large works that survey painting: each adaptations derived from Dark Forest. In Solo Series 1-6 (40” x 40”, oil on linen, 2016), Richmond highlights several sections of the large-scale paintings to duplicate as amplified “details”, forming individual compositions.
Richmond makes paintings, installations, films and music compositions, encompassing an ongoing conversation across mediums and employs diverse materials and modes, exchanging language and concepts between genres. His practice draws upon nature, form, composition and movement.
