Recent Works By Richard Pastor
Richard Pastor’s work blends the immediacy and dynamic nature of photography with the more static
qualities and traditions of oil paint. Working from collages of his own photographs, he creates paintings
imbued with a relativistic conception of space-time, in which space bends and time dilates as they are
subjugated by light; works at once frozen and flowing, fleeting and permanent. By augmenting
objective reality with the fluid and impressionistic reality of human perception, he makes works
abstracted to the point of recognition.
