Known for his figurative bronze sculpture and stainless steel monuments, Becker’s new works in “Float” reveal a dramatic shift in style, subject and material choice following the artist’s re-entry into the world of hearing via a cochlear implant after years of near total deafness.
“The artworks in ‘Float’ began emerging a few years ago as sound and music were miraculously returning to my life. I found myself increasingly drawn to lighter, buoyant works and the beauty of water and clouds.” — Richard Becker
Whether creating a small work, a painting, or a monument, Becker strives to make works that inspire. It is the artist’s hope that the works in “Float” bring inspiration to viewers. Becker adds, “As we journey through space and time together as living, breathing, collections of shared stardust, it’s inspiring to reflect on the miracle of our existence and the worlds around us.”
