About

I AM (SWEET SPOT) is part of the series titled the I AM paintings.I AM (SWEET SPOT) is part of the artist Private collection as he kept a few works from that period for his [private collection. A few pieces are now available for sale. Those wroks were exhibited at Cheim & Read Galley, New York in 2001 accompanied by a catalogue. The artist works are in prestigious US collections including The Broad museum in Los Angeles, MoMA, NY, The Dallas Museum of Art etc. ABOUT THE I AM PAINTINGS: Richmond Burton’s works are known for their kaleidoscopic color, undulating patterns, and lyrical handling of expressionistic mark making. The I AM paintings manage to simultaneously hold two truths without becoming one or the other. They exist both as geometric, structured, formal, while concurrently being relaxed, visceral, seductive, and organic compositions. The works play with decorative patterning without compromising a conceptual backbone. Their intensity of vision allows for transcendent thought, experience, and connection while challenging any preconceived norms or rules defining abstract painting. The paintings hold a tension between ruptured grids and naturalistic, diffused light with jolts of intense jewel-like color. Metallic colors are used—gold, silver, and copper thread through the work and coalesce into details, concentrated inlay or patterned punctuation. Abstracted forms break and congeal, with imagery reminiscent of swirling sperm, egg yolks, rocks, petals, leaves, and shells. There is also no hierarchy between singular artist references such as Gustav Klimt, Lee Krasner,Roberto Matta, Joan Miró, Jackson Pollock, and Alma Thomas versus craft-based affinities such as that of Byzantine icons, Art Nouveau, calligraphy, tapestry and mosaic. “Structure is never absent; it’s just uninsistent, even accidental. The paintings are built up in stages, but never give the impression of being hard-worked. They have a fluid, textural presence, like luxury fabrics printed with overlapping, off-register layers of patterning.” — Holland Cotter, The New York Times (1999) Richmond Burton (b. 1960, Talladega, AL) obtained a BA in architecture from Rice University Houston, TX (1984). He lives and works in Woodstock, NY.
