Samuelle Richardson

My fabric pieces are an exploration of stitching together in which I emphasize their handmade quality, welcoming the incomplete and rough.

Much of my influence comes from primitive art where I see knowledge in the work and I speculate on how primitive artists achieve such character with a minimum of detail. Some of it seems accidental but I think there’s more to the story. It isn’t formal training that informs what they do, but a life long interest in their subjects. In a world where the predators play for keeps, less is more and they get the point across economically.
