Richard J. Watson
The Royal One - contemporary abstract collage painting with found objects, woman

2015

$2,500

About

Much of Richard Watson's work relates to his experiences as a Black African American man. "Most of my works are supported by memories of the past and suggested realities. Issues of social politics, ancestral references, and astral projections are presented with fragmented elements of 'real life' collaged and collapsed, as dreams are prone to do. If connections are made, all the better. I feel that life should remind us of our dreams." - Richard J. Watson "The Royal One" is an acrylic painting with collaged elements and found objects on wood panel. It includes a photograph of a woman of African heritage, jewelry, leaves, and other unidentified objects. It is signed lower right. The work itself measures 15" x 10" and is framed to 17" x 12" in a simple gold wood floater frame with black reveal. Richard J. Watson is an icon in the Philadelphia art world. He is a graduate of Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts (1968), has taught at his alma mater, and has served in the Exhibitions Department at the African American Museum in Philadelphia since the 1980s. He has been exhibiting his work for decades, and has an extensive bibliography. His work is held in the Petrucci Family Foundation Collection of African American Art; the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts; Temple University; the Uniworld Corporation; Sony; the Federal Reserve Bank; the City of Philadelphia; Sprint; the Church of the Advocate; the poet Dr. Sonia Sanchez; and the Woodmere Museum of Art, among many others.
