++the paintings of Kim (Keek) Richardson

photo by Stephanie Greene

I long for a magic carpet. I practice the witchery of bringing darkness to light. I'm an advocate of balance, a mirror, a patron saint of discarded objects, a back alley nomad, a  connoisseur of trash, a painter of found objects. I think love is the perfect elixir. My paintings are invitations to journey inward and ponder your own paths or deeper universal truths.
