Richard Barrett is originally from Cardiff and left to attend Sheffield University to study Ecology. Afterwards, he spent time teaching in London but quickly decided that his future lay in his interest in art.
Richard Barrett’s landscapes have an allusive, abstracted quality. The movement of the wind and the rain as well as the drama of shifting light on the land provide magical, fleeting moments in an ever changing landscape. They invite the viewer in, to find their own interpretation, their own personal story.
