Richard Harvey is a figurative artist who explores the psychological and emotive potential of the human face in a contemporary expressionistic style. Driven by a fascination for experimenting with processes, he works across a broad range of styles and mediums, including digital printmaking and painting, mixed media collage, encaustic painting, and mixed media sculpture. His work often draws on both his graphic design background and his interest in primal expression found in ancient or indigenous cultural artifacts.
Richard graduated from Rochester Institute of Technology in 1972 with a BFA in graphic design and a minor in fine art. In 1993, he returned to RIT for graduate study in computer fine art imaging. Over his decades long art career he has enjoyed numerous juried and non-juried events along with solo exhibitions.
The public is invited to visit him in his Rochester, NY studio, Anderson Arts Building, Studio 204, 250 N. Goodman St., 14607, by appointment and during open studio events.
