Ray Richardson – The Return of the Southpaw

“Wee Bri” seems ubiquitous… making his mark but staying aloof. This detachment is important, paintings are not just descriptions they are also experiments, trying to make sense of the world and to find the artist’s place in it. I see Ray Richardson everywhere in his work, sometimes as a straightforward self-portrait at others as park footballer, confident urban casual and, not least, as an English Bull Terrier.
