Drawing life into his haunting world, Missouri native Jeffrey Richter conveys a sense of melancholic rhapsody through his imaginative work. Having attended various art, printmaking and sculpture classes, Richter also worked as a graphic artist, designing T-shirts for Paramount Apparel.

Incorporating collective themes that fuse the boundaries of love, isolation and death, the prominent technical mechanics of his charcoal and pastel drawings are a surreal twist of shadow and smudge, mystery and chiaroscuro lighting. Richter’s creative palette generates a heightened sense of empathy towards his tortured subjects while the eerie balance between human, machine and inner beast remain equal counterparts. Utilizing dramatic contrasts in detailed composition and elemental atmosphere, he renders his somber tones into unique visions of industrialized darkness.
