About Richard Nott

Richard Nott trained as a fashion designer and worked with Valentino in Rome before co-founding the fashion company Workers for Freedom. In 2000, leaving the world of fashion behind, he was able to fulfil a lifelong ambition to become a painter.

Working in the fashion industry all his life Nott developed a respect for, and enjoyment of, all aspects of clothing. Wanting to retain this led to a continuing series of paintings inspired by clothing held in museums and private collections around the world.

Recently the work developed a figurative direction. Dealing with concealment, confrontation and disguise Nott has produced paintings populated by figures and animals.

Nott plans to spend half of each year working on and developing each of these two strands.

Works from various shows and commissions hang in private houses internationally.

Recent Work

Clothing – produced in the first part of 2013 this group of paintings juxtapose iconic historic garments with decorative elements from other garments, combining cultures and different periods in time. As always the paintings of clothing are not about the wearer but do reflect human presence.
Figurative – the paintings combine compositional elements that are suggested to the artist in periods of distraction, reverie and reflection.
