About

Richard Fett’s paintings relay complex contemporary dramas focusing on the social, sexual and psychological aspects of human relationships. The viewer is invited to construct the visual narrative from introduction to denouement. While the subject matter emphasizes female and male interaction, the formal qualities of the paintings are informed by theatrical performance, movies, fashion magazines and art historical precedent. The paintings’ smooth high-gloss surfaces consists of layers of glazes suggesting a ‘silver screen’ or a photograph. Fett’s works demonstrate a balance of technical skill and psychological intensity. The paintings are not personal records. Rather, they analyze and manipulate sexual mores and social codes for new examinations of intimate interaction. As co-author of the narrative, the viewer is invited to add another dimension to the drama. The meaning of the paintings is therefore not fixed, but is constantly changing with each visual dialogue.
