‘The Return Of London’s No1’

Ray Richardson ( British born1964)

During lockdown 2020 Richardson with his Return of the Southpaw training regime, maintained keeping his eye and hand coordination painting away in his apartment dubbed ‘The Indoor League Studio’ just to try to keep a level of sanity and purpose whilst unable to visit his usual studio by the Thames.

With his trusted dog and best pal Wee Bri by his side, the one man and his dog dynamic duo were at home alone for 12 weeks.

In that time he generously utilised ‘The Artists Pledge’, produced a selection of cracking works for the NHS and variety of charities as well as a raft of handsome oil paintings on board that are full of tales filled with instant richness. 


Painted with optimism “holding the board in one hand and swivelling them round chopping and changing from painting to painting bought a spontaneity to the work bringing us a bit of hope coming up & out into the light”. The Title of the show links on from his sell out show at the Ben Oakley Gallery ten years ago in 2012 and we welcome the artist and good friend of the Gallery back for round two.

These affordable unseen little gems will be on show at The Ben Oakley Gallery Opening Fri 3rd December from 7pm and will run until 19th Dec 2021 We look forward to seeing you all as we wrap up our year long schedule of excellent artist shows. And finally we would like to thank everyone who has supported us in any way over this last tough year, we hope you all keep well and have a safe and happy Christmas.
