About the Work
Richard Killeen’s cut-outs can be hung in any arrangement. He intends works like this to be “more democratic… than conventional framed painting.” This leaves the viewer free to interpret the relationship between the shapes depending on their own associations and their experiences and to form their own stories about the work.
