The Big Horn Galleries proudly introduces
the artwork of Oregon artist Richard Murray.
Richard's life size and nearly life-size paintings
depict the essence of the animal subject he
has admired all his life. Integrating the
frame as part of the painting, Richard's work
focuses the viewer exclusively on the animal
itself. His paintings are at once realistic,
with a minimal, contemporary style and are
captivating works known for their three-dimensionality.
Born in Utah, Richard attended the University
of Utah where his interest in painting figures
and landscapes were originally dismissed by
his instructors. Upon moving to Oregon, Richard
re-discovered his love for animals and began
his successful career in painting the creatures
of the outdoors. We are excited to offer our
collectors the opportunity to see and own
these magnificent works of art by this artist.
