  Jean
Richardson

Jean Richardson's art is a celebration of regional themes that are unique to her own experience and background. Her imagery undoubtedly re- minds us of the Southwest, yet it does not for a moment leave us with the sense of a group of prints that are particularly regional in character. It seems familiar to us, whether or not we hail from that section of the country. Both in theme and style, Jean's world is always hovering be- tween abstraction and figurative representation; it is difficult to place her work into a single easily defined category. In much of her work, Jean is exploring a theme that she calls "Plains Myth". Easing vague mounted human figures in heroic stances, she romanticizes these myths much as the writers who wrote of King Arthur. Those legendary stories were not about a man, Arthur, but about chivalry and myth. Richardson's paintings are not about the Southwest but about our heroism, our myths, our special American ideals of the noble, and the solitary wanderers recollected from our past.
