Richard Williams, Elysium Artist in residence, Swansea

I visited Richard in his studio in February 2018 tucked away in a refurbished ex-nightclub, behind a bright yellow front door.  Rich was working hard on his forthcoming exhibition  ‘Come get it while its cold’ which exhibited from February to April 2018.  The beautifully colourful images have a dark undertone, concerned with the idea of humanity’s disconnection from and exploitation of the ecosystem, specifically with the current massive and increasing depletion of insect populations in Europe.
