The writer James Joyce believed that the best art was that which “grabs the viewer and arrests them and turns their focus outward from themselves.” It is Richard Kooyman’s hope that others seeing his paintings can focus their attention outward and become moved by the expansive beauty of the painted surface. He makes paintings and drawings because he believes that art can change the world by changing how we think and look at the world.
