Richard C. Elliott

Richard C. Elliott (1945-2008) engaged in a lifelong exploration of color and pattern, devoting his artistic life to understanding and expressing the play of light in form. Eventually Dick found drawing too limited in expressing this relationship, and he began 20 years of creatively using a decidedly utilitarian medium to do that: safety reflectors. This “reflector art” would not only break the bounds between the conventional and the innovative in art, it would bring him eventually full circle in the last year of his life to drawn geometric works on the computer figuring richly colored, geometric graphics of virtually infinite variety.
