BEYOND THE 3RD DIMENSION - A STUDY OF TIME AND SPACE
In 2008, Randy Richards became the first artist in history to combine photos from different times of the day or year into the same piece. Richards had been using Photoshop commercially since the year it was invented and was bound to create some interesting fine art eventually.
What started as paintings from doodles in 2006 developed into digital, assembled photos from 2008-Present. Randy combines 2-3 different photos of the same scene. He depicts different times of the day or year into each piece, currently using the cube as the device for assembly. Being a 3D package designer professionally, the cube began popping up in his doodles and eventually in his fine art. These first became large paintings. Always intrigued with Monet's painting of the same scene at different times of day inspired Randy. Randy establishes a strong sense of space, light and a 3D reality that makes you feel you can step right into the cubes and enter a new dimension. His first pieces in 2007-2008 didn't use the cube. They simply had the two photos on top of each other but that quickly changed as he didn't feel it was interesting enough. Randy provides a whole new perspective on dimensionality, time and space.
