Rick Garland

Rick studied at Gemini School of Illustration, which is one of the premier illustration colleges in Europe. Upon completion he went on to work as a fine art illustrator for 15 years and then became an independent fine arts artist working primarily in acrylics. Rick has been commissioned privately on a number of subjects, including portraits. He has painted in New York, New England and Rome.

“I am a realist painter with a much stronger interest in the atmosphere and light in my subject than the detailed recreation and static representation that realism and hyper-realism often gives us. I start with an idea or object’s appeal and my illustration background and love of narrative help develop that into a direction for each painting. I work primarily in acrylics, but sometimes with oils as well, and mostly on canvas.”

“In my urban landscapes and figurative pieces, there is very often an obvious aesthetic I am drawn to, and aim to convey. Almost always there is a hidden undercurrent and story, if not more than one embedded within the piece. This is true as much for me, as it is for the viewer.”
