"I wanted to make a picture that would respond to Valéry’s request: 'I want to unknowingly behold something that mirrors my thought'. To do so would require rethinking representational strategies of signification. I wanted the painting to provide an original experience."

Richard Höglund studied art at the School of the Museum of Fine Arts and semiology at MIT in Boston, USA. He holds a MFA (DNSEP, 2008) obtained at the Haute école des arts du Rhin, in Strasbourg, France. In 2013, Höglund was selected by Tacita Dean to participate in her workshop at the Fundación Botín in Santander. His paintings are considerations of History and Language.
