Richard Höglund (b.1982, New York) was educated at Northeastern University, University Karlova in Prague, The School of the Museum of Fine Arts and Massachusetts Institute of Technology.
Höglund’s unique practice explores the fundamental artistic methods of drawing and painting to create distinctive works that investigate the significance of these traditional media.
Richard Höglund uses language and mark making as a starting point, turning linear form into melodic abstract compositions through the use of particular materials such as microscopic shells collected on the banks of the Mississippi River, marble dust, pulverised bone, lead, tin, copper, silver and gold. The works reflect tone, timbre, time, mood, depth, colour, prescience and history.
Höglund was awarded the Prix Jeune Création, Paris, France (2006) and has participated in several residency programs including Villa Ruffieux, Sierre, Switzerland (2013), Cannonball, Miami, USA (2012) and Villa Bernasconi, Geneva, Switzerland (2010).
In 2013, Höglund was selected by Tacita Dean to participate in her workshop at the Fundación Botín in Santander.
