Welcome to Montville Art Gallery

Richard Bogusz
Richard Bogusz was born in Europe in 1947 of German / Polish parents who immigrated to Australia when Richard was five.His artistic talent blossomed early, gifted with a natural ability to draw and an abundant imagination. Richard has held a great desire to work things out for himself and copy no one. He has avoided any external influences, which he feared would corrupt his unique perception of the world. As an artist, Richard Bogusz does not deal in reality, but in a journey into his imagination.Richard began painting professionally in the 1970s. In 1986, Richard and his wife Barbara moved the family to Townsville to escape the pressure and expectation of those demanding his work. Here he embraced clear, bright colours which would be a refreshing contrast from the greys and browns of his earlier work. In 2001, he moved to Brisbane where he continued to paint his imaginative, narrative works with his girls in bright dresses interacting with the birds and landscape which are instantly recognized as a Bogusz.At different periods in Richards painting career, he has tried to break, not only with established methods of style and technique, but also with the contents of his works. That these attempts often proved to be unsuccessful were due, he now realizes, to the radical manner in which he sought to bring about the change. During 2005, his paintings have evolved, retaining elements of his former style, including birds, animals and tropical landscapes but with a greater simplicity and spontaneity. The demand for Richards work has been so high that he has chosen to just supply a few selected Australian galleries with whom he has developed a close rapport. His works grace collections throughout Australia and overseas.
