UK artist to hold solo exhibition
By John Redmond
British artist Richard J. Beaumont’s new solo exhibition “Birthday Suits” will open at Gallery Annabini in Seoul from Oct. 7 through 13.
The exhibition is seen as getting right down to basics, reducing all complexity to simple lines and basic colors.
“We’re born in our ‘birthday suits’ without pretension, without concern for fashion or taste, we are what we are. For the rest of our lives we cover up, take on airs and graces and parade around dolled up to the nines; except of course in our most private and intimate moments when all again is revealed warts and all,” states Beaumont in a press release.
“This collection of new paintings, based largely on drawings done in a series of live modeling sessions examine the human form in all its glory. The paintings are fluid and expressionistic attempting to capture a fluidity of mood rather than frozen reality.”
The opening party will take place on Oct. 7 from 6 - 9 p.m.
