  • About the work

'Karma' from Richard Heeps' series 'A Short History of Milan'.

'A Short History of Milan' began in November 2018 for a special project featuring at the Affordable Art Fair Milan 2019 and the series is ongoing. There is a reoccurring linear, structural theme throughout the series, capturing the Milanese use of materials in design such as glass, metal, wood and stone. Richard has a strong connection to Northern Italy from printing his books in Verona, and visiting Milan many times to exhibit. The work here is a series he has been sketching ideas for for a while, and is his first body of Italian work, capturing the spirit of Milan. It sits alongside his street photography work capturing Hong Kong, Vietnam and New York, which depict the fingerprint of cities through colour, fabric and structure with distinct style.

This artwork is a limited edition gloss photographic print, dry-mounted to aluminium, presented in a museum board white window mount and a choice of black or white box frame fitted with anti-reflective UV70% glass. It is signed and numbered on reverse accompanied by a certificate of authenticity.


About the Artists

1965 Cambridge, United Kingdom

"Richard Heeps’ seductive, highly saturated colours and sophisticated pictorial structures demonstrate a true love and  empathy 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."

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 artists 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.
