Richard Preston





Ocean Sediment



“Preston's work is imbued with the themes of relatedness, rootlessness, displacement and home; how universal forces replicate in the human the same forms exhibited in the Earth: the cycle of mountain building, the evidence of tectonic action, the forces of growth and decay, erosion - how a discontinuous continuity can be discerned through an in depth, patient observation and how we, as self-conscious beings, struggle to find personal relevance in this vast cosmos” – Prestville Art

I love that description.

This is Richard Preston's work with beading and textiles. These squares of colour remind me of my home! My family collect paintings, tapestries and statues from all over the world and most are laced with colours and beads much like these.
