  • About the work

'Schoeman's Drift', taken in Parys, Free State, is an example of Richard Heeps' work taking you on a journey. The road is a reoccurring theme, often the location is ambiguous allowing you to see your own road trip. The moody sky over over this open road in South Africa, part of a sequence of photographs, including 'Windscreen' and 'Tinted Window' taken as part of Richard's series 'The New Lantern'.

 

 


About the Artists

1965 Cambridge, United Kingdom

"Richard Heeps’ seductive, highly saturated colours and sophisticated pictorial structures demonstrate a true love and  empathy for his subject matter - be it cool descriptive interiors, still  life or landscape. His distinctive style pushes the limits of lens- based photography without the need for digital manipulation."

Although I was brought up in East Anglia, I was heavily influenced by America, I visited American bases, I kept magazine cuttings and I followed drag racing. The speed, lifestyle and technicolour is reflected in my imagery. "American" colour is a major aspect to my work, it drives my equipment and material choices. 

At the age of ten I began participating in Art Shows and became comfortable with showing my work and the praise and criticism which is part of an artists development. In my early paintings Manhattan was a reoccurring theme, I was fascinated with New York.

In my professional career I have been lucky enough to exhibit my work in Museums and Public Galleries since the 1980's. These days I travel exhibiting at International Art Fairs and I still enjoy connecting with my audience, I am driven to create something and see how people respond to it and how they connect to it.
