Dominic was born and lives in Alston, Cumbria. At the age of 2, Dominic was involved in a road traffic accident that resulted in him acquiring a brain injury. Despite this difficult start Dominic, now 24, has pursued an interest in art undeterred.
Finding it difficult to paint with brushes, he mainly applies paint with his hands; leading to an appealing style. View from the Tunnel, Dominic’s first exhibition, reflects three areas key to his style; scale / perspective, colour and emotion, inviting the viewer into the world of Dominic Richardson and his perspective of the landscapes important to him.
“I work at home. I like painting semi-abstract landscapes in oil. I work with my hands, pallet knifes and sponges to put the paint on. I go to the Lake district and other places in Cumbria and Northumbria with my camera. I have done 89 Wainwright in the lake district; I do them to get in inspiration”.
The fact that Dominic has achieved so much so far is perhaps testament to his greatest strength; his emotional intelligence. He is intrinsically motivated, reflective/self critical and is focused on a lifetime of learning and personal development.
