Blake Richardson — Visual Art
34 years ago I graduated from Sheridan Collage. In my last year of the illustration program, I stumbled onto a unique technique. The seed of the idea started during a project illustrating songs that I had written. I used inks and paints to splash on to paper to the music and began to see images emerge from the ink splashes. Photography was part of the course and I began using my camera to seek out visions in other textures in the environment around me. That lead to discovering a depth of imagery in nature that continues to inspire my art today. Arts and Craft festivals are an ideal environment to share my visions with the public. I focus on the the message that my work holds.To remind people of there own unique vision,the sacred in all things and the relationship and connection we all individually have with it.
