  • About the work

YEAR: 1999

EDITION: MULTIPLE

TECHNIQUE: C PRINT

Richard Caldicott is most well known for this earlier work series which used Tupperware containers as the subject for his photographs.

As he describes : "Tupperware works used two colour transparencies (overlapping colour), a simple still-life situation but shot twice, and then the image would be flipped, sometimes, you would get a double intensity of colour"

His aspiration when producing those pieces was the transformation of the functionality of every day objects.

This work is edition 6 of 15


About the Artist

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.
