About Richard Caldicott

Though he also produces drawings and prints, Richard Caldicott is best known for his photographs—abstract compositions of colors and geometric forms made from precise arrangements of Tupperware and other kitchen implements. While his use of such a mundane consumer product as Tupperware to create his exquisite photographic images could be considered ironic, Caldicott seems more focused on formal considerations than conceptual hijinks. His photographs have been compared to the Color Field paintings of the Abstract Expressionists Mark Rothko and Barnett Newman.

British, b. 1962, Leicester, United Kingdom, based in London, United Kingdom
