Richard Jolley

Richard Jolley's work is involved in many kinds of subject matter, yet he holds fast to certain visual ideas. The human silhouette, the sphere, the column, the male/female aspects of identity, the symbolism of birds, the mythology of Atlas, the repose of sleep, and the subtle ingredients of thought in relation to metaphysical time and space are but some of the visual traces that occupy Jolley's lexicon. Given the recurrence of these signs in his works, Jolley's tendency is to move in the direction of Surrealist ambiguity - to escape from the everyday into dream. Through Jolley's focus and concentration, comes the message that art is not limited by its medium but is open to a continuous exploration of what can be meaningful to the human eye.
