Elemental Singularities

at Brian Marki Fine Art Gallery in Palm Springs, California, USA
January 25-February 25 2020

An exhibition of mixed media collage constructions by Richard Poulin. An American designer, educator, author, and artist based in Palm Springs, Poulin’s most recent works, entitled “Visual Essays: Elemental Singularities” are comprised of sixteen 12″x12″ birch plywood panels and utilize chipboard, photographs, printed ephemera, and correspondence collected over the past forty years.

Since the 1970s, Poulin has been inspired by the work of modernists and avant-garde artists such as Kurt Schwitters, Hannah Höch, and Joseph Cornell. Richard has said that “these ‘visual essays’ express my life’s passions and pains, joys and losses, and the fundamental aspects of spirit, soul, and being.”
