Rick is an emerging artist, stepping out from the shuttered windows of the office world. He works in oils and digital photography, combining elements of surrealism, abstraction, and allegory. Some pieces are whimsical, some mysterious, some the stuff of nightmares. Whatever the genre, whatever the style, each piece invites the viewer to consider the broader narrative context of the image. "Who are we?" "What are we?" "Where are we going?" So often we confine ourselves to shadows; this work strives to break the silhouette.
