Leah Stoddard, adjunct curator of contemporary art for the Taubman Museum, interviews me in this terrific documentary by David Eklund that aired on Channel 13 in Charlottesville.
The interview touches on my current exhibition of figurative artwork "Russell U. Richards Gets Real", that is up for one more week at the McGuffey Art Center. If you haven't seen the show, please come have a look before March 27, as it's likely to be my last art exhibition in Charlottesville for some time! I'm really excited about this show, as it introduces a whole new body of work, in a new style, based on figure drawings done from live models. A few of the new works can be seen on my blog.
Again, thanks to all that pledged to the Kickstarter campaign for my short film "Fiji Mermaid".
In coming months I intend to focus on filming the remainder of the live action, and to putting the finishing touches on my previous sci-fi short "Bride of the Fly". If anyone is interested in assisting with these productions in any way, please get in touch. Big things are happening with these movies, so stay tuned!
Lastly, I'd like to put out there that I am available to design posters, T-shirts and rock art, and paint portraits, figurative or erotic pieces on commission. Hand-rendered graphic art is becoming increasingly rare in these days of Photoshop and clip art, so please contact me here or (434) 825-0557 if you'd like to discuss commissioning something unique!
Thanks again for your interest and support, and be well,
Russell U. Richards
