Nature’s Layers unveils the natural evolution of Richter’s ongoing Reveal Series.  The paintings continue to convey a sense of uncovering.   The artist’s process begins with the mixing of paint, then a layering upon layer application, followed by sanding, scraping - in a sense burnishing- the surface to reveal what’s below.    Nature’s influence is subtly disguised often referencing trees, ocean waves, wet sand, fallen leaves, daylight or moonlight, etc..  When these tend to be of a minimalist view they take us to a place of subtlety; creating calm amidst moments that may otherwise feel chaotic.
