Hodges Taylor Art Consultancy in Charlotte, NC, Features Works by Richard Fennell

Hodges Taylor Art Consultancy in Charlotte, NC, is featuring works by Richard Fennell through Jan. 31, 2012.

Born in 1947 in Ridgeland, SC, Fennell received his Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from East Carolina University and a Master of Fine Arts degree from the University of North Carolina at Greensboro. His intense landscapes of his surroundings in the piedmont region of North Carolina reflect a careful placement of color, which he uses to translate the essential structure of nature. Fennell conveys a true sense and emotion of place in the intense North Carolina landscapes.

Fennell states, “I try to deal and attempt to solve problems that arise through visual contact with nature. The answers to problems such as how to create a balance of color, how to create the illusion of three-dimensional forms, and how to arrange these colors and forms in a convincing space, I believe, exist in nature. What one has to do is look and observe.”

Fennell’s work can be found in the permanent collection of the North Carolina Museum of Art, Raleigh, NC; Montgomery Museum of Fine Art, Montgomery, AL; University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill, NC; Duke University, Durham, NC; Kenan Collection, University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill, NC; Alamance Art Society, Graham, NC; and East Carolina University, Greenville, NC, as well as numerous private and corporate collections nationwide.
