The Someone in Painting/A Picture

Fourth Lloyd Productions, 2016
268 pages, paper ISBN 978-0-9889391-2-7
8.5" x 10.5",199 color plates; 15 b/w plates $38.00


In this comprehensive retrospective of figurative and abstract paintings and drawings from 1973 to 2014, Richard Stodart examines the relationship of self and reality along transcendental/static and realizational/dynamic lines in the painting experience. In the process, differentiation and equality, delusion and enlightenment, thinking and meditation, a picture and painting are mediated in and through a 'someone' on a personal and impersonal level.

DreamMaking: The Intimacy of Picture/Reality

Words by Dr. Hee-Jin Kim • Paintings by Richard Stodart

Fourth Lloyd Productions, 2013
84 pages, paper ISBN: 978-0-9889391-1-0
10" x 7", 22 color plates $39.95


In DreamMaking, human fallibility (amid delusion/dream) and human perfectability (beyond delusion/dream)  entwine as foci of the process of calibration and the state of  equilibrium.  From this nondual perspective, one lives amid/beyond  dream by expounding/making a dream within a dream, in and through the deconstructive/reconstructive function of emptiness, without blurring the  differences between duality and nonduality.

Free And Easy Wandering: Markings On the Way

Fourth Lloyd Productions, 2007
84 page, paper ISBN: 978-0-9717806-3-7
8.5" x 11", 17 color plates $29.00


From ancient times to the present, from Homer's Odyssey to Dereck Walcott's epic poem, Omeros, the hero journeys to faraway places in search of adventure, freedom,  and wisdom, and returns home with humility to share the passion and advocacy of his quest with others.  


Inspired by Dragon's Play, a Taoist transmission of nonduality by Charles Belyea and Steven Tainer,  Free and Easy Wandering: Markings on the Way  tells the story of a journey that begins in isolation and ends in nonduality.   Twelve abstract paintings, called Markings, explore a deconstructive dynamic of autonomy, aloneness, and  detachment, in and through the transformative power of emptiness.
