Gordon Richards – Regenerate / A new exhibition at the SHAC

The SHAC is delighted to be hosting ‘Regenerate’, an exhibition of paintings by one of Australia’s most renowned artists Gordon Richards at The SHAC Gallery.

Before painting his first canvas in the early 90’s, Gordon was a highly acclaimed chef and innovative restaurant owner in Bendigo, Victoria, farming much of his own produce, including yabbies! In 1991 he relocated to Noosa, Queensland and established a new restaurant highly regarded for its innovative cuisine. It was in Noosa that Gordon’s talent for drawing and painting finally emerged – he exchanged his chef’s knives for paint brushes and so began his extraordinary career as an artist.

Gordon’s training as a chef enables him to work fast and spontaneously; scraping back and layering lush acrylics onto his canvases. Together with his self-confessed passion for “wine, women and food” and his ability to record observations of humour and pathos in everyday life, the artist is rewarded with the instant appeal that has made him one of Australia’s most successful artists.

Gordon is represented in numerous private and corporate collections throughout Australia and overseas including USA, Brazil, London, Amsterdam, Vienna, Switzerland, Germany, Hong Kong, Korea, Singapore and Japan.

The ‘Regenerate’ exhibition runs from November 29 until December 24.
