Paul Rickert’s “Industrial Visions” depict images of suburban and industrial America. A graduate of the Art Center College of Design in Pasadena, Calif., Rickert uses oils and watercolors to create illustrations that mimic the colors and weather of the Earth at various times.
Rickert says he is attracted to the “mystery of urban of life,” which he captures in paintings of factories, train stations and bridges, among others. According to Rickert, his work is about “the narrative of circumstances that are imbued with the subjective and hidden meanings of a private world.”
Rickert’s paintings can be viewed in the Art Gallery on the third floor of the BLC until Feb. 28.
