Born in Trinidad, West Indies,1945, Richard Stodart is a self-taught artist with a Fine Arts degree from Ryerson University, Toronto, Canada, 1971. Awarded a Canada Council Grant in 1973 for a figurative series of paintings exploring the relationship of the self and reality, in and through presence, his work has been internationally exhibited.
Monographs Free and Easy Wandering: Markings On The Way and DreamMaking: The Intimacy of Picture/Reality, and a retrospective The Someone In Painting/A Picture: paintings, drawings, and reflections on nonduality, attest to the time of impeding [self-affirmation] in the painting experience.
I work in a push-and-pull way with the pure subjectivity of the unfolding and enfolding temporal whole to paint a picture of natural completion.
Friends, 1987, acrylic on canvas, 36" x 47.5" (painting right).
