KITE FLYING AT MURLOUGH oil on canvas Richard Croft RUA
Richard’s house and studio are situated in Dundrum County Down perfectly placed beside a windswept shoreline, sun-dappled sea and imposing mountains that so often appear in his work. Richard is both a painter and print maker of high acclaim and he and his wife Helen Kerr, the highly accomplished batik and stitch artist, have lived in the village for over 30 years .His work is included in many collections, both public and private, including the Arts Council of Northern Ireland Collection, the National Self-portrait collection at Limerick University, the Government of Northern Ireland Collection, The Irish Embassy in Beijing, the Northern Bank, Belfast Education and Library Board, Downe Museum, Ulster Television, London University, Oxford University and the Queen's University of Belfast.
Richard describes his method of painting as “funambulism or tightrope walking”, switching between abstraction and realism.
The painting is signed and framed and measures 16x20"
