About Richard Heiens
Thanks for visiting my Portfolio.
What I paint could be a landscape, an abstract, a cubist design or even a combination of all three. An abstract landscape with cubist elements would not be unusual. Most of my work is semi-abstract so that viewers can see what I see on the canvas. Each art piece often consists of multiple styles and themes based on the research I have done and new areas of interest that lead to the next body of work. Interests and thoughts give life to shapes, arrangement, and color. Color is the main emphasis in all my paintings. My paintings all have the richest and deepest colors I can achieve. The desire to bring out the brightest colors in my art stems from the paintings of Van Gogh who used color to entice the viewer to want to look deeper into his paintings. Van Gogh stated "The painter of the future will be a colorist in a way no one has been before". That is my goal and reason for painting.
