Music to Drive To 14 Willy Bo Richardson

“Phillips de Pury, Watercolors” First Look

Wow, Wham, Word and Op Art – Willy Bo Richardson early first review

The rain chased us into the Phillips de Pury Chelsea gallery for a moment of what are we going to see.

Overlooking the celebrated High line and The Hudson River, it was a wonderful surprising to see the Richardson pictures – 6 striped watercolor and gouache paintings.

Immediately reminiscent of Bridget Riley Paintings – Op Art paintings. Not surprisingly, he found his painterly voice in the stripe. Richardson has relentlessly pursued the possibilities offered by his exploration of colored vertical strokes.

I really enjoyed the show and want to go back to look at some of the other artists but if you are looking for a deeper look at the show click here:
