Rick Borg Columbus, Ohio

So, I also got the chance to see Rick paint a bit, this was great. From an article a few years back..."Rick Borg's paintings and three-dimensional pieces fall loosely into the broad categories "folk" or "outsider." Each circus performer, each human or animal "portrait," including the more recent abstracts, vibrates with spontaneity. Yet, intention, spirituality, and practice undergird his modus operandi: a fast-track repetitive brushwork that enables him to render objects, animals, and people in a childlike or naive way."
