Introduction
Richard Bosman (born 1944 in Madras, India) is an Australian-American artist living and working in the Hudson Valley of New York State. Bosman is best known for his paintings and prints. His work is often related to crime, adventure, and disaster narratives; rural Americana; and nature and domestic themes. He is associated with the Neo-Expressionist movement of the late 1970s and early 1980s, which includes artists such as Eric Fischl and Leon Golub. Bosman was a member of Colab, the New York artist collective founded in 1977, and participated in the group's influential 1980 “Times Square Show.”Bosman's early paintings and prints drew on pop culture representations of violence and romance, including pulp fiction book illustration. More recently he has created woodcuts depicting turbulent seascapes, volcanoes, Adirondack scenes and other imagery, displaying what New York Times critic Roberta Smith called a “penchant for parody-homage” toward his subjects. Writing in the Times, Smith stated: “Mr. Bosman's luxuriant, dashed-off brushwork brings a quality at once antic and powerful to expanses of trees, water and wood grain and staring deer, both living and stuffed.”
