BURTON, an abstract painter and printmaker, earned his BA in Architecture
from Rice University. Richmond Burton lives and works in East Hampton.
Burton's colorful and harmonious paintings and graphic work are composites of his vocabulary of organic shapes that flow together in undulating patterns resulting in unique multi-colored abstractions. With a background in architecture, many of Burton ' s paintings stress visual order. Hard-edged geometrical forms dominated his early canvases, but later a more organic patterning emerged.
