ARTISTS STATEMENT:

Shaun Richel is a fine artist, who paints and draws both the landscape and non-objective abstraction. Before coming to the Taos area in ’97 she had earned a BA of Fine Arts. “What I most want to express in my work is it’s ‘painterliness’,  the loose, rapid handling, or the look of it, with broken color, uneven saturations and also to show the densities of the paint.  My approach is to be open at the start of a piece and to allow anything to happen.”


BIOGRAPHY :

Shaun Richel was born in Canada, at age 11 her family moved to Southern California. She has been involved in the arts since her early twenties. Working toward an interior design degree Richel had the pleasure of experiencing many art classes.  Deciding to leave California to find a new place to live and wanting something completely different, she and her partner found they were drawn to Northern New Mexico. Especially loving the "big sky" with all that that implies; dramatic rain storms, amazing clouds and drama of  the light, they came to the Taos area in late winter of '96 to live. Being submerged in the art world, the artist was realized, and the rest is history.

My paintings are painted on a high quality gesso canvas, stretched on heavy duty stretcher bars, and I use high quality oil paints. My paper works are painted on acid free paper, and either placed behind glass or placed on board and then a cold wax is applied to the surface.
