Richard C. Elliott | Vibrational Field : Bursts

Richard C. Elliott (1945-2008) engaged in a lifelong exploration of color and pattern in his quest to express the primal sources of art and the play of light in form. In his early years, he created a wide variety of drawn works heavily influenced by his interest in native arts and performance art. But eventually he found drawing too limited in expressing the relationship between light and structure, and he began 20 years of creatively using a decidedly utilitarian medium: safety reflectors. This “reflector art” would break the bounds between the conventional and the innovative in art and it would bring him eventually full circle in the last year of his life to drawn works on the computer, through richly colored, geometric graphics of virtually infinite variety. Here we see some of his geometric graphic works that all emanate from a core, central point, bursting with kaleidoscopic effect.
