About the Work
Bruce Ricker redefines landscape art using a style that he calls epic visionary. Formal education in art and architecture combines with a lucid imagination to result in the unique Ricker style. A Puzzling Paradise is a pastel and Prismacolor on paper. The image size is 10 x 9.
The Ricker style of painting, developed over many years, is rooted in his powers of observation. “First one must see the bones of a landscape, the three-dimensional molecular nature of rock in all its power and insistence: this is the foundation of any landscape.” With this foundation, Ricker begins to introduce the effects of sunlight, wind, and water; sensual patterns and textures emerge and flower further as they manifest the biological life.
It is this borderline between the real and the imaginary, that Bruce Ricker explores—a fertile ground for seeing life in a newer, more interesting, and ultimately more meaningful way.
