Transference II (on right), 2012
Having explored abstract letter-forms for close to two decades, Richey’s painting style embodies and exudes architectural three-dimensional qualities, a methodology he has consistently employed. The canvases he works on (in the studio and on the streets) transcend their conceptual typographical bases by transforming flat surfaces into visual portals that extend beyond the physical plane of the painted surface. Richey presents new work that manifest these ideas into sculptural form, demonstrating his diverse talents in working with material beyond paint in transforming letter-forms beyond two dimensions.
