Watercolour & Pastel on Paper
Signed by Richard Chrisp
Watercolour on Paper 400 x 275mm.
There are many variations in Greek Mythology on the origin of the sunflower, but all are centred around the Sun God Apollo and the water nymph, Clytie. A story of unrequited love, Clytie adored Apollo and spent her days gazing skyward in the hope he may look down upon her.
Richard has had a long-time enjoyment of beauty, colour and gardening, including flower species, courtyards and rambling gardens and botanical expressions.
His love of flowers and nature often resonate in his floral and boutique garden paintings.
Chrisp's work has been likened to artists David Jones, Matisse, Raoul Dufy and Cezanne, showcasing an energetic personality evident in his interior, landscape and floral paintings.
