Bio

Richard Stride is an emerging visual artist, living and working in Brisbane. He completed a Fine Art degree with honours at Queensland University of Technology in 2010, and currently works primarily in drawing and object-based formats, while occasionally delving into other mediums. Richard’s practice is driven by a curiosity of the built environment and the tensions evident in it. It particularly seeks to question the contemporary role of geometry in regard to our experience of simplicity and complexity, and order and disorder. His work also explores the form and function of everyday objects and their potential for abstraction and metaphysical meaning. Richard has exhibited at galleries such as Metro Arts and Ryan Renshaw Gallery, and has created large scale installations for events like National Youth Week and the Woodford Folk Festival.
