GORDON RICHARDS CURRICULUM VITAE 1953

Born Melbourne, Vic.

Before painting his first canvas in the early 90’s, Gordon was a highly acclaimed chef and innovative restaurant owner in Bendigo, Victoria, farming much of his own produce, including yabbies! In 1991 he relocated to Noosa, Queensland where his talent for drawing and painting finally emerged - he exchanged his chef’s knives for paint brushes and so began his extraordinary career as an artist. He now lives in Sydney and works from his studio in the Southern Highlands. Gordon’s training as a chef enables him to work fast and spontaneously; scraping back and layering lush acrylics onto his canvases. Together with his self-confessed passion for “wine, women and food” and his ability to record observations of humour and pathos in everyday life, the artist is rewarded with the instant appeal that has made him one of Australia’s most successful artists.
