Pray Away the Gay : Christian Conversion Therapy for Homo Sinners


Did you like? Subscribe: http://bit.ly/1lTU4Yv

Intern (Aaron Anderson) and I found an article online about Christian conversion therapy and decided to spend the afternoon learning to "pray away the gay." Since we are both deeply afflicted homo sinners, we knew that if these instructions could cure us of our homosexuality, they would work for anyone! Join us as we ask Jesus to prune our bush and make us fruitful for Christ by going through a series of ridiculous tasks that include expelling demons, reading the bible with guidance, sucking up to bullies, bro bonding, baptism, and more...

Things that Piss Off Artists : Bootlegs, Scams, & Thieves - Vlog 16 - Paul Richmond Studio



Did you like? Subscribe: http://bit.ly/1lTU4Yv

Being an artist is awesome! Being taken advantage of isn't. Sadly, the two often go hand in hand. Here are some recent experiences I've had with bootlegs, scams, and thieves - including a follow up on my issues with copyright infringement on eBay. While all of these things suck, my hope is that emerging artists who watch this won't feel discouraged, but empowered to value yourselves and your work enough to stand up against all the jerks out there.

Why are Republicans Scared of Bathrooms? - Pauly Vlog Episode 14 - Paul Richmond Studio



Did you like? Subscribe: http://bit.ly/1lTU4Yv

Lately, republicans have been obsessed with bathrooms. In state after state - most recently North Carolina and Georgia - we see them pushing for legislation to force transgender people into the wrong bathrooms, casting them as the predators when they in fact are the ones preying on the ignorance and fear of their constituents. Let's see if we can help people like Governor Pat McCrory get their heads out of the toilet.

THANK YOU to my friends Tom Morgan, Briden Schueren, Aaron Anderson, Edwin Clark, and Tony Gatto for helping me with this one!

I had the privilege of sharing my artwork and story with members of Creative Foundations earlier this week. Creative Foundations is an organization that provides support to individuals with developmental disabilities by giving them the choice to earn an income while creating and selling art to the community. It was an incredible experience. I really enjoyed spending the day with so many talented, creative people!

Battleground | War Paint Series

Battleground, oil on canvas by Paul Richmond

Battleground is the newest addition to my War Paint series. The original painting is available through the Lyman-Eyer Gallery and limited-edition prints are available in my online store.

Here are some detail shots.

I recently completed my artist statement about the series:

WAR PAINT
“They understand only too well the liberation into savagery that the concealing paint brought.” –Lord of the Flies, William Golding 

 Body painting has significance in many cultures and serves a variety of purposes from spiritual cleansing to battle preparation. My War Paint series draws upon this rich symbolism to investigate the construction of identity. In these paintings, the modern masculine form becomes the canvas, a painted object of his own creation. Reality and abstraction compete within the figurative foundation of each piece to make the subjects’ inner struggles more tangible. The application of pigment is suggestive of their psychological states, the color of their self-made armor exposing more than it conceals. This work also challenges conventions around masculinity and the male form. By deconstructing and rebuilding the figure, my goal is to invite understandings that reach beyond the immediate surface and reveal the complexity of the individual.

Visiting Artist at Cornell University

I'm excited to be a visiting artist at Cornell University this fall with my amazingly talented friend, Melissa Forman! We'll be hosting multiple workshops and presentations as well as creating an art installation about bullying to be unveiled on the final night of our visit.

I created this painting to donate to the 2014 Forte Benefit for the Columbus Gay Men's Chorus.
