Richard Maurovic Artist Statement

Richard Maurovic is a precise person who plans every move. And yet, when it comes to deciding what to paint, he lets his eyes decide and his mind follows. Celebrating the man-made world, he finds beauty in interesting forms, colour contrasts, incongruent compositions or beautiful light, and he gets them down; the potential meanings and narratives following in the days and weeks as the work develops. By the time the artwork is finished, the story has formed in his mind. The creation catches up with the vision.

In this collection one sees the variety of images that caught his eye and translated into these frozen moments. The primary colours and wonderful patterns of balconies of a Sydney apartment block, the lyrical sunset over a highway, kooky tetrapods shoring up the spit of a lighthouse in the Venetian lagoon. These images of everyday interest, humour, or loveliness are a key to Richard Maurovic’s character and interests.
