Paintings are inspired by the constantly changing palette of sky and broad lake. Situated on an island to which there is a causeway, the Alther residence is almost totally surrounded by water. Richard Alther creates a realm of visual poetry and abstraction that transcends the material world and elevates us into an ethereal dimension, giving us a sense of renewal and rebirth.
