Richard Schellenberg

I started out as an illustrator, then a painter. My work became three dimensional in the 1980’s. In the 1990’s I started incorporating video into my sculptures.

I’ve come to believe that my art and life is about returning. Not in a nostalgic sense, but looking at the past with new eyes and making connections with the present that need to be made. My work is conceptually based. All projects emerge from ideas that are of compelling interest to me or something that I respond to emotionally.

I have studied creative writing, literature, drawing, painting, silver smithing, Jewelry making, video production. All of which have informed my work in important ways. I’ve attended the Corcoran School of Art in Washington DC, The Art Students league in New York, NY, Montgomery College in Rockville MD, apprenticed with silver smith and artist Komelia Okim and attended Frederick Community College in Frederick MD where I am currently employed as a video producer and motion graphic artist.
