Richard Paul

During his residency in the Department of Materials, Richard Paul undertook photographic investigations into what microscopic and high-speed ballistic images might reveal or uncover about our knowledge and understanding of the world beyond the limits of our perception. 

Richard Paul was born in Paisley and studied BA Fine Art in Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art, Dundee (now University of Dundee) and MA Fine Art at Central Saint Martins (now UA). An extended period as a catalogue photographer and noise musician coloured (literally) his vision of the world and the means by which he felt he could articulate it. A chance encounter with a product of Brian May’s obsession with stereoscopic photography (a still life by T.R. Williams) allowed himto figure out a happy medium between the image and the object; this has resulted in him producing lenticular prints and 3D videos for projection and 3DTV. Representation by Theodore:Art in New York, solo exhibitions in Seventeen Gallery London and Sixprojectspace, Bournemouth, and various international group shows have allowed him to develop his practice in full view of various publics.
