Green Rice Gallery in Charlotte, NC, Features Works by Richard Babusci

Green Rice Gallery in Charlotte, NC, will present, Systems and Organisms, featuring a solo exhibit of works by Richard Babusci, on view from Mar. 4 - 27, 2011. A reception will be held on Mar. 4, from 7-9pm.

Babusci’s work is a combination of watercolor and acrylic paints, layered with color and texture to add complexity while keeping the finished forms simple. His creations are living and dynamic rather than static representations of any idea or existing form. They are new “forms” in and of themselves – never finished, rather beautifully imperfect.

Babusci offers the following statement about his work, “I think the creative process is something that occurs in everyone as naturally as breathing. Consequently, I feel it thrives most when left to its natural inclinations instead of prescribed notions about composition or other aesthetic ‘formulas’. As such, my own artwork begins very loosely and randomly with no predetermined result. The goal of this particular body of work is to expand upon the idea that the paintings are newly created ‘things’. Some of the pieces are about the relationships of multiple contrasting fields on the paper. This makes for a more complex, landscape-like composition. Others focus on a single and simpler dynamic, like a specimen on a microscope slide.”
