Richard Caldicott

Born in: 1962

United Kingdom

Richard Caldicott is an English artist who explores abstract photography and creates abstract compositions on paper. He lives and works in London.

EDUCATION

He studied at the Royal College of Art, London where he obtained his master in 1987.

TECHNIQUE

As an interdisciplinary artist, Richard Caldicott comes across materials and techniques, including drawing, photography and sculpture.

His works on paper, made with ballpoint pen and inkjet printing, reveal a bare sophistication whether it be with minimal drawings or with buoyant and colourful forms.

Caldicott’s photograms and paper negative series consist of diptychs with the cut-out paper negative placed on the left and the photogram on the right.

INSPIRATIONS

Richard Caldicott's work has a relationship with architectural and musical structures, formalism and geometry, referring to modernist painters, designers and architects like Donald Judd, Max Bill, Barnett Newman and Ellsworth Kelly.

“I like artists who do other stuff. With Judd, I like his architecture, his furniture, his printmaking. It’s the same with Max Bill, somebody who crossed over into different fields, with furniture and architecture”

Repetition is an important element of Caldicott’s work, this strategy echoes the art making of the Minimalism period. So is series, “Caldicott is an archetypal adopter of a ‘serial attitude’ “ as per writer Derek Horton’s quote.

Sir Elton John, who is is a fervent collector of Richard Caldicott's work, wrote, "Richard has the unique ability to transform the medium of photography, creating something new, but still using the most traditional technique. Richard is one of those artists who elevates photography to an important and recognized form of contemporary expression."

In 1986 he was awarded the Paris Studio Award of the Cité Internationale des Arts, RCA. His work is featured in various international and corporate collections including Sir Elton John collection, Goldman Sachs and Clarks UK.

Caldicott has widely exhibited worldwide in solo, group exhibitions and art fairs including FIAC Paris, Art Basel, Paris Photo, Photo Miami and the Venice Biennale.
