Richard J. S. Young 1996 Mixed Media, Reclining Nude on Red

Young - 1996 Mixed Media, Reclining Nude on Red. A delightfully expressive nude study with charcoal, pastel and watercolour. Dated and marked with a studio stamp. From a new selection of works directly from the artist's studio.

Executed with expressive line and rich in texture, Richard continues to be inspired by the ballet dancer as well as the visual landscape that surrounds us. Born in the leafy suburbs of Woking, Surrey in 1954, Richard's family moved to Australia a year later where they settled near Adelaide, and then in Woomera in South Australia. It was in Australia that Richard first began to discover his passion for the arts.

Living in Woomera's arid and dry landscape, Richard became fascinated by colour and abstraction, using the library as his inspiration. He revelled in books displaying the paintings of Impressionist artists, particularly the works of C├ęzanne and Matisse whose works offered a vibrant contrast to the landscape that surrounded him at the time. Young was particularly drawn by Turner's earlier landscapes and the works of Mark Rothko. Richard obtained a PhD in Chemical Physics at the University of Kent in Canterbury and has spent his life building a reputable career working in the field of solar energy.

Young has stated that he chose to join his interests in art and science... I was inspired as a teenager by Leonardo Di Vinci who as a Renaissance man joined art and the sciences and pioneered many of the techniques of art and technology. His influences are diverse, extending to music, the figure, the sea and the desert. Current influences are drawn from the abstract expressionist works of Richard Diebenkorn, but greatly from Scottish artist Barbara Rae, whose'intense colour bursts evoke dramatic landscapes but remain resolutely abstract' [RA Magazine, 2014], much in the same character as Young's works exhibited in this collection.

Sulis Fine Art traces its origins back four generations. Benjamin Diamond opened a picture framing factory in Midtown Manhattan in the early 20th century. Originally known as Royal Art, the business worked closely with artists and museum institutions, developing a reputation for creating fine frames. Royal Art passed through the family and eventually evolved into Sulis, now run by Benjamin's grandson Bill, and his son Dan.

We handpick all our stock and we've grown into a ten-strong team of art historians, photographers, restorers, studio technicians and despatchers. We relocated to our Corsham studio in early 2020, leaving behind our small garden workshops in Bradford-on-Avon that had been our base for several successful years. We are always striving to connect people with the art they love. Each week we add new artworks to our extensive catalogue, across all styles, subjects, colours and periods. At the heart of Sulis, we rescue and restore lost and forgotten works, giving you the opportunity to find unique pieces and discover art in a new and different way.
