About the artist:
Richard Shields claims to be undertaking a residency in his own life. Shields invokes personal experiences affecting a wider cross section of society. The struggle for success, embracing failure, permo anxiety, Googling your ill health, dancing with debt, and identity all feature in Shields work.
A relationship with the viewer is built through familiarity in objects and the site specific. These concerns inform painting, drawing and sculpture, encompassing realism and abstraction. Shields recent 'Technical Drawings' are based on his experiences as an art handler and meme culture. Each work presents images associated with art technicians, accompanied by anecdotal texts.
