Martin Richman's work addresses issues concerning light, colour and space both in the private and public realms. Richman creates spaces which deal with moments of seductive promise and frustration; the spaces are often physically unattainable yet imaginatively inhabitable.
As well as a strong studio practice and producing work for exhibitions and private houses, Martin Richman has done many public projects from stand-alone sculptures to collaborative works with architects and engineers. Richman is well known for the transformation of Tyseley Energy From Waste Facility, Birmingham (1997) in collaboration with architect Ray Perry that received a RSA award.
His recent exhibitions include the Come To Light in association with Rhodes + Mann which toured to Aspex, Portsmouth and Customs House, South Shields (solo); Shine at St Pancras Chambers, London (2002); Light Proof, Jesolo Lido, Venice (2002); Psycodilia, Aeroplastics Gallery, Brussels (2001); The Wreck of The Hope, Nunnery Gallery, London (2000); Light and Space, Homer Gallery, New York (99/2000); Chora, 30 Underwood Street, London (touring 99/2000).
