Ric Burkitt is a former graphic designer, part-time painting tutor and full-time artist. Ric works in a variety of styles and mediums from his Stoneville studio. His abstract paintings – primarily in acrylic, on canvas or wood panel – are process-driven explorations in colour, line, shape, texture and space, each one retrieved from a kind of relentless creative muddle and disorder. Working with brushes, scrapers, brayers, crayons and palette knives, Ric moves each painting along with varying amounts of conscious thought, creative intuition and a nagging sense of panic that only diminishes when the painting is completed.
