Rick Krieger is a Chelsea-based artist in New York City who studied at the School of Visual Arts. He began making hundreds of sculptures and paintings of imaginary characters in 1975 and has been obsessively exploring their world ever since. Many of these works have been shown at Hudson Guild Gallery during the past 30 years, where Rick has also been actively involved as a curator for over 2 decades.
These are freestanding figures made of Sculpy -- a plastic clay-like material which is easy to mold, and then is cooked in an oven to harden. Afterwards, the artist applies paints in a variety of bright colors. The figures all have distorted features emphasizing different body parts.
These are a series of drawings of characters in development which the artist often transforms into his signature three-dimensional figures.
These large scale works are painted on durable poster paper measuring 52" by 68". The brightly colored figures vibrate on top of bold geometric shapes.
