An Alternative Reality in Photography
Alan M. Richards, an artist who lives in Roslyn, NY, focuses on creating photographic image composites to express his unique, humorous and often satirical artistic vision. His image composites consist of as many as 20 multiple photographic images in one work of art which he often paints in order to achieve the desired effect.
His objective as an artist is “to create an alternative to reality” and states, “I try to tell a story with each image.”
Richards’ art work is in many private collections and has received many awards. His artwork “Man on Pier” won First Place at the Salmagundi Club’s “Photographic and Graphics Exhibition for Non-Members” in New York, NY. It also was selected for Manhattan Arts International’s exhibition devoted to “The Healing Power of Art” 2015. It was chosen by Luxe Beat magazine to receive a special Featured Artist award.
In 2014, Lilly Wei, New York art critic for Art in America magazine, selected his artwork for the Manhattan Arts International “Celebrate The Healing Power of Art” exhibition.
Richards’ creative imagination, rare sense of humor, and unique perspective about the world will continue to provide a cast of characters that are immediately recognizable and endearing. When you encounter an original Richards’ work of art, you may never view the world in the same way again.
