LEHMANN + SILVA presents C’Est Sombre Vers Le Nord, the first solo exhibition by British artist Richie Culver (Withernsea, Yorkshire 1979) in Portugal.
Richie’s work draws on many personal references, from his working-class roots in the North of England, to metropolitan living, as well as his own experience of the darker side of urban life, making humorous references to popular culture, contemporary politics and social commentary.
The exploratory and improvisational approach to painting we find in Richie Culver can be seen as an outcome of the tensions between binary cultural and social opposites – provincial vs. cosmopolitan; on Benefits vs. affluent; art museum highs vs. street-cultural lows; North Vs South. In what seems an examination of one’s experience and inner self.
