All of Richmond’s paintings were acrylic on canvas, and many of his works featured smudges to create a darker palette of colors and indefinite lines, leaving a vine-like appearance. Some works featured dark writing such as “outside my head, my problems don’t exist.” The characters in his paintings were gaunt and monster-like.
At the exhibition, Richmond implored visitors to look past the morbid exterior of his work and develop a deeper understanding of his art and of themselves.
“I want people to not glance at it but really look it,” he said. “I want to give visual representation to the thoughts and feelings that you carry all day.”
Richmond created his artwork to inspire viewers to embrace their fears.
“We can get so ruled by fear that we are avoiding the darkness but really we are avoiding our lives,”he said.
The exhibition also featured photography focused on interference with the psyche and ego by Jason Baker and Anthony Grassetti,as well aslive music courtesy of DJ Static (James Cuddyer) and Howie River.
Grassetti said he and the other artists got involved due to the welcoming atmosphere of Richmond’s exhibitions.
“His gallery is a great place for all sorts of artists to come together, free of pretense,” Grassetti said.
Overall, visitors felt the music and layout added to the artwork.
“I think [the design] is good,”John Park, an attendee from Boston, said. “It encourages a social environment which is surprising with dark art.”
