Richard Kitchen North Yorkshire, United Kingdom
  Back to profiles

Richard Kitchen is a visual artist and writer who has also taught literature and theatre in the UK and Spain. He currently co-manages a gallery and studio in York while making artwork fuelled by his drawings, paintings, photography and poetry. In 2020 he was awarded an MA in Fine Art at York St John University. He is also a freelance editor and proofreader. He welcomes enquiries and commissions.

Richard's cross-disciplinary practice embraces paper and photo collage, drawing and painting, wall art, frottage, sculpture, installation, poetry and performance. His work is influenced by the effect of time and nature (and people) on the environment. He advocates the recycling and repurposing of materials and much of his art makes new connections between disparate sources, often finding beauty in the unloved and the discarded. In times beset by division, distraction and crisis, he believes that how we piece together fragments of experience is how we try to make sense of the world. He is interested in exploring text as a visual as well as a verbal medium.
