Richard Van Vliet’s abstracts range from the traditional to abstract expressionism to avant-garde.  Some imply landscapes, some darker moods or chaos, while others are simpler exercises in color juxtaposition. This section features the more traditional tone of his work.


What began as a wall resurfacing project in the early 1990’s gave birth to astylistic period which endures to the present.  Three dimensional texturing of joint compound on a room wall translates over to the acrylic medium in anexciting, dynamic way, creating new forms and landscapes.   Many of Van Vliet’s recent works utilize this texturing, from a series of smaller pieces to larger pieces on canvas or paperboard.
