Richmond Burton, an abstract painter and printmaker, earned his BA in Architecture from Rice University. Richmond Burton lives and works in East Hampton.
Richmond Burton's colorful and harmonious paintings and graphic work are composites of his vocabulary of organic shapes that flow together in undulating patterns resulting in unique multi-colored abstractions.With a background in architecture, many of Burton’s paintings stress visual order. Hard-edged geometrical forms dominated his early canvases, but later a more organic patterning emerged. Devoted to his work with what has been described as a ’monastic’ fervour, he believes ’painting is the only artistic activity without compromise’.
