Artist Statement

Richard Sorrell is a painter of invented figurative pictures or, put more simply, ‘People doing things’. He works in oil and acrylic paint as well as in watercolour. His career started as a predominantly landscape, portrait and still life painter – by instinct a draughtsman, and interested in the appearance of things, particularly plants and animals – an objective painter. His subjective painting – the invented compositions – was a smaller part of his work at this time, but the inventions have come to greater prominence since the 1990s.
