    Artwork sold in perfect condition

    Photographed by Richard Heeps at Bombay Beach, Salton Sea, California.

    The combination of the sun's rays crossing the horizon and the silhouette of the tree rising unexpectedly from the lake like King Arthur's sword, create a wonderful ethereal quality to this piece.

    This work of art is a limited edition glossy photographic print, dry mounted on aluminum, presented in a white museum picture window holder and a choice of black or white box frame professionally made in the UK.

    It is signed and numbered on the back accompanied by a certificate of authenticity. It can be requested unframed or we can offer a consolidated shipping price when purchasing in multiples.

Richard Heeps

United Kingdom Born in: 1965 Bestsellers Emerging artists

Richard Heeps b. Cambridge, UK, 1965.

Richard Heeps' Seductive, highly saturated colours and sophisticated pictorial structures demonstrate a true love for his subject matter – be it cool, descriptive interiors, still life or landscape. His distinctive style pushes the limits of lens-based photography without the need for digital manipulation. He has exhibited widely in museums and galleries. He has four books and has contributed and featured in many high profile publications.

In 2007 Richard along with photographer Natasha Heidler founded Bleach Box Photography Gallery, a platform that participates in worldwide art fairs. The aim is to show powerful images created without digital manipulation. Working with artists, they produce their work from negative in their Cambridge based darkrooms. They source the best materials to produce high-end fine art pieces, and their artworks are now part of many international collections.

Although I was brought up in East Anglia, I was heavily influenced by America, I visited American bases, I kept magazine cuttings and I followed drag racing. The speed, lifestyle and technicolour is reflected in my imagery. "American" colour is a major aspect to my work, it drives my equipment and material choices. 

At the age of ten I began participating in Art Shows and became comfortable with showing my work and the praise and criticism which is part of an artist's development. In my early paintings Manhattan was a reoccurring theme, I was fascinated with New York.

In my professional career I have been lucky enough to exhibit my work in Museums and Public Galleries since the 1980's. These days I travel exhibiting at International Art Fairs and I still enjoy connecting with my audience, I am driven to create something and see how people respond to it and how they connect to it.
