Richard Colombel defines himself as a treasure seeker, constantly searching for hidden truths beyond conventional perception. Which truth? A multiple reality, that of the visible, of light, but also that of our perceptions and the clarity that drives them. "To go in search of reality is to hunt rainbows", he is pleased to say. This is why he paints all day long and travels in this jungle of phenomena.
"As a child, I liked to stay in the orchards and the forest near our house in the suburbs of Paris. I was fascinated by the perfection of nature and certain to find the essence in it ".
