About Richard's work, " I have been using the House or Home as a metaphor for the self, as well as a time and place, and the human condition for some time. I see old buildings, architecture in general, and especially dwellings, as reliquaries, repositories of lives lived, of human history. The buildings in these pieces and others before them, were inspired initially by images in magazines and by daily observations of buildings abandoned or in transition. But more in the last decade by rural buildings seen on cross-country road trips from Los Angeles to Murfreesboro, Tennessee while driving our son to college."
