Richard Quinn believes that Art is the "language" of the unknown. He creates events, music and visual works, designed to confront and embrace the bright realm of enlightened mysteries, as well as to unmask the dark extremes of spiritual and mental blocks that prevent the luminous world of the Spirit from being experienced.
He creates first, to feel the intuitive creative impulses streaming through the physical and spiritual aspects of his being and the universe around him; second to feel the thrill of witnessing something freshly created from elements that are both perceptual and material; third, to feel the weaving of social interactions that revolve around the process of creating; and fourth, to experience the movement from a state of potential to a condition of actual creative power. Richard was born in Ohio and studied at the Cleveland Museum of Art and the California Institute of the Arts. He is trained in theater and music as well as painting. He brings a multifaceted sensibility to his creations. His strong interest in Eastern and Western cultures are evident in the ceremonial and meditative aspects of his work.
He has a distinguished record of solo exhibitions in New York, Chicago, Los Angeles, San Francisco, New Orleans, Miami, La Jolla, Sausalito, Las Vegas and Carmel.
