This biography from the Archives of AskART:
The following, submitted March 2004, is from the artist whose website is www.rickfleury.com

Artist Rick Fleury says of his current work: "As my direction in painting continues to move like a wandering back road, I find myself drawn ever closer to the medium of oil and the simplicity of the landscape. I continue to look to simplify my approach while at the same time reach for more complex challenges in terms of scale and composition, content and emotion."

About the artist:

Rick Fleury has been painting coastal landscapes and still lifes of the Outer Cape and Martha's Vineyard for more than ten years.

A self-taught artist, he has created work that has appeared in several Provincetown shows and galleries as well as in juried shows in Cambridge, Boston and Florida. He has been a year-round resident of Provincetown since the winter of 1997.

Artist Statement (May, 2003)

My aim in painting has always been to capture the most exact interpretation of a moment in time, so that that moment may be revisited over and over again.

I am not drawn to the abstraction of such moments as much as I am to capturing the essense of their beauty through the gesture of a brushstroke: the rare light as it moves across a meadow, or the shadows or reflections it leaves behind; the subtle variations of color as they change with the seasons or time of day; the movement of grasses or sands as they move with the forces of nature or man; the solitude of a wandering low tide or a sun setting for what seems to be a last time.

I find, in working, as I move between watercolor and oil, last year and this, yesterday, today and tomorrow, I am constantly looking to simplify this interpretation, both in what I see and what I choose to capture in paint. For it is in the simplest of gestures that the truest points can be made.
