Exploration has always been a constant in Richard Nattoo’s life, and an integral part of his art and artistic processes. Richard creates in an attempt to capture and deconstruct the common feelings and emotions of everyday life, so that he can examine their inner workings. At its core, his work attempts to capture the feelings and emotions he experiences and translate them, into the surreal spaces that we all inhabit within ourselves. The goal is to explore feelings and emotions, on murky cerebral levels and construct the tumultuous and beautiful inner world that resides within all of us.
He says of his process, “I call this inner world ‘the Silent Echo,’ and my exhibitions have been about exploring this rich and textured place. A variety of mediums, such as pen and ink, watercolour, and most recently glass, have been employed. Each exhibition is a chapter of the journey deconstructed.”
