Geoffrey Ricardo

Geoffrey Ricardo Exhibition

14/10/2020 -


Geoffrey Ricardo is a Melbourne based artist who essentially employs a figurative based narrative language. Drawing on a heritage of Surrealism and figurative expressionism the work explores personal and broader issues. Often tinged with humour and a feeling of the absurd, the images are in one way or another, a comment on the human condition. On first encounter the pictures are slightly satirical, comic or absurd. Underlying this there is a deeper questioning of human nature. Geoffrey Ricardo has held regular solo and group exhibitions since 1990. He is represented in various public and private collections in Australia and overseas.

Ricardo was born in 1964 Frankston, Victoria, Australia. He studied Fine Art (printmaking and painting) at C.I.T. Post Graduate and Masters of Fine Art in printmaking at Monash University after which he worked as a print assistant at Bill Young Studios editioning intaglio prints. Ricardo has been a sessional lecturer at Monash University for 7 years and guest lecturer at Victorian College of the Arts, R.M.I.T and P.I.T. Residencies at Canberra school of Art and U.W.A.
