RICHARD WARRINGTON: A Sculptor's Simple, Bold and Rhythmical Reactons to the Environment
Sculptor, designer, and commercial artist Richard Warrington creates commanding sculpture pieces in powder coated aluminum, stainless steel, corten steel and bronze.
Based in the Pacific Northwest, Warrington has long enjoyed living in a landscape that has a bold influence on his art. His impressionistic sculptural work reflects his formative years spent exploring the dramatic cliffs and canyons, basalt plateaus, towering rock formations and deep gorges carved out by the ice age over 10 thousand years ago in Central Washington. Equally influential in in the inspiration behind his highly polished silhouettes are the fluid forms of the human body.
In 1991, a tragic fire destroyed Warrington's home, art studio and nearly all of his work. He interpreted the loss as a chance to expand himself and his work into the national art markets of New York, Florida, and Chicago. His marketing efforts, internet presence and exposure at New York's Art Expos led him to galleries and designers who helped him build upon a very successful career.
Warrington is best known for his aluminum and stainless steel three-dimensional and wall relief sculptures with beautiful transparent finishes over buffed metal surfaces. Recognized for his simple, bold, rhythmically flowing designs, his sculptures engage the viewer with their action, deep lustrous finish and a powerful emotional bond. From the use of color to the buffed finishes of the metal, his attention to detail is consistent throughout every area of his sculpture.
Warrington specializes in producing limited editions, one-of-a-kind, and site-specific commissioned sculptures for private, corporate and public art projects. His work is presented in private and corporate collections throughout the United States, Canada, Europe, South America, and Hong Kong.
