About Ricky


My work recalls a common childhood experience. When I was young I envisioned myself as a miniature person, a toy figure standing only a few inches tall. Items like pillows and radiators were transformed into massive geographical landmarks. As if attempting to explore the frontier, I could convert these man made objects into a vast, all-surrounding, natural landscape.

I am now reliving and further developing that concept with my art. By distorting the scale in my work, figures interact with the domestic environment in completely new ways. Our perceptions change when we subtly adjust our scope of the world.

I just saw you work in a art show and I feel that your work is great. I am just start out and do not have a website but face book under DOLORES MARIE.

precious performance of a modern enchantment.

You have found a part of my childhood as well. I felt an instant eerie connection in your work, as though you were painting for me.

A fantastic concept with a lot of leeway. Striking images. Deeply personal (these always work best.) Utterly stoked.

Probably the only artistic ability I have is to tell when something is special. The concept, composition, proportions, and detail is very impressive. I too find the drawing stunning and certainly deserving of First Place. My sister was a commercial artist for a time and I can tell you?¦she never approached this capability.

The drawings are fantastic!!
