Richard Morgan

         

Richard Morgan is an artist from Columbia, South Carolina. After undergraduate studies at the University of South Carolina he went on to complete a Master of Fine Arts at the Savannah College of Art and Design in order to further enhance his knowledge of classical realism, art criticism, and teaching. He currently employs a more expressionist interpretation of painting. His works explore the intersection between depicting forms derived from nature and the materials and processes of painting. They balance between representation and abstraction through the use of expressionist painting methods and mimetic renderings of flora and fauna. As a primary part of his studio practice he takes regular visits to the local countryside near his home in Hendersonville, North Carolina where there is ample space to roam and explore. Richard maintains a studio as well in Columbia where he teaches and works on large scale paintings
