Richard Bledsoe “Nemesis” acrylic on canvas 16″ x 20″
I am pleased to announce I was invited to contribute work to “The Stuckist Art Show and Summer Sale,” on display from July 8, 2016 – August 20, 2016, in Liverpool, England. I’m sending my newest completed painting, Nemesis, an image so mysterious even I don’t understand it yet.
Thirty artists are showing their work at View Two Gallery, an independent art gallery in Liverpool’s famed Cavern Quarter, a cultural hot spot famous for its role in launching the career of the Beatles.
The sale portion of the event features works of under $146.00 (once i figured up the pounds to dollars conversion). I’m contributing a piece to that which grew out of my fascination with theater and Samuel Beckett in particular: a character from the classic play “Waiting for Godot.”

The show is taking part during the prestigious Liverpool Biannual so there will be lots of art lovers about. I am very excited to be part of the international phenomenon of Stuckism, the first Remodernist art movement, and truly the cutting edge of the artistic grassroots gone global.
