Biography from the Archives of askART

Biography photo for Richard MacCormack
The following is from the artist:

Born in Norwood, MA, Richard MacCormack later moved to Cape Cod, MA. He cites influences ranging from the 17th Century Dutch Flemish painters to local 20th Century period artists. When he creates his portraits, figurative works still life's, and seascapes, he strives for a painterly illumination, and not merely to have his painting "look of a time passed." His goal is to articulate and capture the moment. Most often his works depicts his daughters as his major source of inspiration. Other subject matter reflects his soundings, nobility figures, and objects native to Cape Cod and New England.

MacCormack was educated in Massachusetts at Duxbury High School, and the Massachusetts College of Art. He also studied at the Rhode Island School of Design.

With a studio in Cape Cod, he branched out and became friends with mentors Peter Quidley, and Polly Thayer, as well as being instructed by Bernard Cheat and Robert Douglas Hunter.
