As if you could hear the sound of color, Richard Schur creates visual experiences based on the transcendental qualities of color. For him Abstraction is a place of collective and personal memories, experiences and emotions. Through a long, systematic and intuitive process, he is aiming to reflect the meaning of every brushstroke and any detail in his compositions. Born in Munich (1971), Richard Schur studied with Jerry Zeniuk at the Academy of Fine Arts Munich, and graduated as "Meisterschüler" in 2000. From 2002 to 2008 he teached painting as Assistant Professor at the Academy of Fine Arts Munich. Recent solo exhibits include The Sound of Color, Galerie der Moderne, Stefan Vogdt, Munich (2017), Meadows, Cross Mackenzie Gallery, Washington, DC (2016), Manhattan Stories, Galerie Postel, Hamburg (2015). While recent Group shows include Ganz Konkret, Galerie Klaus Braun, Stuttgart (2017), Wendezeiten, CCA Andraxt Kunsthalle, Mallorca, Spain (2016), Break Ground, ART 3, Brooklyn, NY, USA (2016).
