Richard Dorff is primarily interested in the space that his work occupies and how that space and the objects themselves interact. By making these connections, primarily through placement and lighting he has transformed the historic home of high-line fisherman Capt. Frank Gaspa into a space that one might have not have intuited it could become. Using a variety of mediums, he has created an environment of works with their own inner space that extends beyond their physical dimensions. His exploration of space and objects, light and perception transports the viewer into a world of his own making.
Referring back to childhood experiences often spent alone in his room, where the main activity was to recreate the space around him physically and to create new imaginary spaces within his mind, Dorff continues to investigate and metaphorically stretch the confines of a given dimension.
Richard Dorff also shows at Atlantic Works in Boston.
