Richard Hearns was born in Beirut and raised in Dublin.
His paintings document a search for an idyll. Driven by a deep spiritual sensibility, his experiences and connections with separate locations and cultures are combined to form a triangular history.
Meditative layers are applied in a physical expression of form, drawn from the discipline of martial arts and the rhythmic nature of rural life. Behind the search for paradise through paint lie all the tender realities of life.
Richard Hearns’ energy and enthusiasm define him as a person and fuel his insatiable pursuit of painting. His artwork will continue to evolve as life, art and experience shape his world.
