Richard Höglund: Primary Colours


Ronchini Gallery are presenting the first UK solo exhibition from Richard Höglund: Primary Colours curated by Kamiar Maleki.


Höglund’s work uses language and mark making as a starting point, turning linear form into melodic abstract compositions through the use of particular materials such as microscopic shells collected on the banks of the Mississippi River, marble dust, pulverised bone, lead, tin, copper, silver and gold. The works reflect tone, timbre, time, mood, depth, colour, prescience and history.


When: 28th June to 10th September
