JOY RICHARDSON TO KICK OFF 2013 FINE ART SERIES AT MYRIAD BOTANICAL GARDENS

Oklahoma City -  Nationally-collected and aptly-named painter Joy Richardson’s brilliant paintings will be shown in the South Lobby of the Crystal Bridge Tropical Conservatory Jan. 24-Feb. 28. A free-to-the-public opening reception will be held Jan. 24 from 5-7pm.

“As a child, I ruined my mother’s appetite for cakes as I frosted them in great goopy swirls of yellow, red and purple – until she hid the food coloring. I’ve always adored color!  My view of the world is that it IS all about color, asymmetry/symmetry, and texture. My bold vivid abstract canvases express those principles,” said Richardson.

“Art lovers tell me that my paintings make them happy. COLOR! My world is all about color! Lively pigments spark my life. Dreams in vivid tones saturate my mind at night and I can’t wait to awaken and splash my latest mental hue across a canvas. That just might be the reason that others have defined me as a “colorist.” Acrylic is my medium as I’m able to finesse from one subtlety of hue to another with the inherent blending properties of acrylics.

Energetic tone and texture intertwine uniquely against a serene backdrop, often with a saucy jolt that leaves the viewer ruminating about why he is uplifted. My works have a timeless appeal, as there is no discernible object identified. The nuances that occur while blending my own color combinations create unprecedented new shades for which the dictionary hasn’t names yet!”

Richardson was born in Cleveland, OH, and came to Oklahoma to attend school in Edmond before graduating from the University of Oklahoma with a degree in fashion art and a minor in journalism. Her art is collected across the country and can be found in galleries including Santa Fe’s Canyon Road Contemporary, Walt Horton Fine Art, Beaver Creek, CO., Vinya, Dallas, and several galleries in Oklahoma City including JRB and Dodson. She has been juried into Oklahoma City’s acclaimed Festival of the Arts five times.

All works in the exhibition are available for purchase and a portion of the proceeds will benefit the Myriad Botanical Gardens.
