Rich has been working with oil paint and wax for over forty years. His story is abstract, improvised and sometimes random. It tries to emulate his thought process, and there are no rules except to reject the obvious, and embrace uncertainty. The work is dense and multi layered with careful attention paid to transparency. It pays homage to his New York School and Post New York School abstract expressionist influences.
