Walls and Windows by Henrietta Richer

This series “Walls and Windows” was shot in an apartment in Budapest, where we were staying for the New Year 2017/18. The apartment was newly renovated and each room was painted a different colour and there were many windows and paintings.
Walls and Windows | Henrietta Richer

My great desire as a child was to be an artist, a painter like my mother, who brought her artist’s aesthetic to every aspect of our lives.

However, I thought I had little talent for art, so I chose a safe option and obtained a BA Hons in French and Italian and after graduating moved to France to marry my very own Frenchman. We now live in the countryside near Paris, in a little village, surrounded by fields and woods. I am largely self taught and photography has become my driving passion. I paint in my own way with light.

This series “Walls and Windows” was shot in an apartment in Budapest, where we were staying for the New Year 2017/18. The apartment was newly renovated and each room was painted a different colour and there were many windows and paintings. Some of the images were taken in the stairwell, which was shabby and decrepit.

I search for naturally occurring blocks of colour and create a blurred image with my camera, devoid of reference, free from any direct associations. Through the editing process I can add or remove colour, tones, highlights or lowlights, just as a painter can add or scrape away paint. The colours in my images sometimes coalesce and sometimes vibrate where they touch or overlap. They contain a breath of life.

I am not interested in illustrating my time.

Illustrating the reality of my time is limiting, it does not liberate me. I see no point in adding to the plethora of largely negative images of our time’s tragedies. My relationship with photography, with the light, is the same as that of a painter with her paints and canvas.

Walls and Windows | Henrietta Richer

My abstract work is inspired by the vibrant tones of Fauvism and the Colour Field painters Mark Rothko and Cyfford Still, and more recently the blurred paintings of Gerhard Richter.

I want viewers to forget their surroundings, to merge with the colours and light of my images, to relax and feel at peace. I want to create harmony and calm, a space to simply be
