After obtaining his BFA from the Maryland Institute College of Art, Richard Vosseller spent the requisite time in New York where he continued to grow his studio practice, took welding classes and worked as assistant to sculptor Mihai Popa. To expand his discipline, Richard moved to the Left Coast and received his MFA from the San Francisco Art Institute. Over the last decade, his practice has grown and evolved to incorporate principles of painting, sculpture, poetry and commercial construction into his art. His thoughts center around polemics of time and space, success and failure, static objects and motion: the world as four dimensions.
Richard has been the recipient of a Cirque Du Soleil Grant, a supported residency at the Goldwell Artists Residency in Rhyolite, Nevada and two commissions for public works from Arlington County, Virginia. He was a semi-finalist for the 2011 Janet and Walter Sondheim Prize.
