Resident Has Art Exhibition at Providence Art Club
Holliston Artist Richard Kattman will be featured in a two person exhibition March 7 – 26 at the historic Providence Art Club in Providence, Rhode Island. Richard will exhibit large scale abstractions alongside abstracts by Rhode Island artist Eveline Luppi in the exhibitionPerspectives. The exhibition will take place in the Club’s Maxwell Mays Gallery located at 11 Thomas Street on College Hill in Providence.
Kattman, who has worked professionally as a landscape architect since 1988, describes his painting process as follows:
“Painting and drawing are my passion. Landscape architecture is my profession. I paint large abstract canvases in the open air by the ocean. I paint large-scale portrait and figure paintings in the studio. Landscape paintings are produced in the field in all weather conditions.
My paintings and drawings are about nature, man’s relationship to nature, man’s nature and the nature of painting and drawing. Through color, line, and the creation of form, I search for beauty and meaning in the universe. Drawing allows me to discipline my creative instincts. I try to capture in every model or landscape the energy I envision radiating from the person or object’s core.”
Kattman joined the Providence Art Club as an Exhibiting Artist Member in 2018 and this will be his first feature in a group exhibition at theClub. Over the past two years he has participated regularly in the Club’s Members’ Exhibitions, sharing his large scale abstractions with the Providence community.
