Jean Richardson's paintings are a kaleidoscope of raw power, movement, and fractured form and color. Her canvases almost seem a head-on collision between the ancient painting of Lascaqux and twenty century modernism. Horses prance, stomp, run and leap across a Richardson painting. Lines are not drawn but manifested by fluid ridges of pigment left in the wake of a libereally and deftly implemented palette knife.
Jean was born in Hollis Oklahhoma. She earned her BFA degree from Wesleyan College in Macon, Georgia, and continued study with the Arts Student League in New York City. Jean is credited in Who's Who in America and Who's Who in the South and Southwest.
