LE RICHE, Kenneth

After completing the Foundation Course at Leith School of Art in 1994, Kenneth studied Drawing, Painting and Printmaking at Edinburgh College of Art, then a MFA at the New York Academy of Art where he graduated with distinction. Kenneth has taught at Leith School of Art, and Edinburgh College of Art. He has exhibited in Edinburgh, New York, Barcelona, Amman and Jerusalem.

There are two related strands in Kenneth’s artwork: observation and imagination. They inform each other.

The observational work is figurative often depicting the experience of painting or drawing itself and its process of creating.

The second strand is of imaginary spaces and forms using perspective and, sometimes, arbitrarily constructed symbols, like letters, arrows, arches, aqueducts and animals.
