exhibits - Richard Royal  

The Marta Hewett Gallery proudly presents the "Aperture Series" by Richard Royal.

Each work in this series is focused upon a perfectly spherical, solid form, a beautifully optical element that reflects, in reverse, what lies beyond.

Like an Indonesian dancer, two graceful appendages extend and wave from this sphere in a dignified dance, all balancing on a single, carefully placed point." These new pieces continue to express the artist's belief in the "vertical nature of faith" as they reach beautifully upward.

"This work", explains Mr. Royal," is not so much about my son but what his presence has done to my perspective and values." I feel he is a window to my soul." I choose to acknowledge that through some of these pieces."

Born in 1952, Richard Royal has served as a gaffer, technician, teacher and resident artist at Pilchuck Glass School, California College of Arts and Crafts, Niijima Glass Center and Wateford Crystal." Mr. Royal was a recipient of a fellowship from the National Endowment for the Arts in 1988."

His distinctive works can be found in the public collections of Daiichi Museum, the High Museum of Art, IBM, the Mint Museum, the New Orleans Museum of Art, Price/Waterhouse, SAFECO and the Tampa Museum of Art, among others.
