Inspired by Classical art, multi-ethnic antiquity, and present day advertisement imagery Ricardo's vivid pictorial works present a torrent of imagery culled from every possible corner of the visual culture.
Through lush, elaborately graphic surrealistic paintings and drawings Ricardo seeks to depict the social constructs of humanity and the complexity of our existence through striking introspective, portraiture, still life, and abstract compositions.
ORBIS FABRICA / 100 YEARS / NURSE IN WAITING, 2020
Was one of the first paintings created in the “2020’ series. It started out as a double portrait of the same woman with one face covered with a mask and the other without a mask adorned in an elegant blue dress seated stoically in a blue background. As the painting continue to develop this “woman in blue” became not only a nurse but also an intriguing metaphor of self assurance and steely determination. Along side the figure is an quietly stormy background with a skull on the lower right hand side and the years 1920 and 2020. Both of these years elude to both the current COVID 19 pandemic and the Spanish Flu which reeked havoc worldwide a century ago. This painting is meant to be ultimately the importance of not only nurses , but also to the valiant efforts of the medical community as a whole worldwide.
