  • About the work

YEAR: 2010

EDITION: MULTIPLE

TECHNIQUE: C PRINT

As the title suggests, Chance/Fall emanates from Caldicott’s improvised method. 

This abstract composition with overlapping and drifting layers of shimmering colors; pellucid radiance exudes a luminous, attractive energy and allures the viewer. This is edition 2 of 5.


About the Artists

1962 Leicester, United Kingdom

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

As an interdisciplinary artist, 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.

His 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 the artist'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 a fervent collector of 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."

Caldicott's work has been exhibited in solo and group shows and art fairs throughout the world including FIAC Paris, Art Basel, Paris Photo, Photo Miami and the Venice Biennale.

His works are featured in various international and corporate collections including Sir Elton John collection, Goldman Sachs, and Clarks UK.
