b. 1968, Bronxville, New York, US.
Richard Pasquarelli employs oil on linen to create smooth, seductive surfaces in powerful new works that explore current trends in contemporary American culture. His provocative pictures, comprised of puzzle-like shapes executed in a range of tones, reveal a disquieting narrative that comments on the theme of America’s growing ethos of over-consumption, waste and greed. He lives and works in New York.
