INFLUENCES AND INSPIRATION

Rhode aims to put his thoughts and visions into the conscious world through his art. His creativity is an expression of the spirit or, as he says, “light” within him.

Rhodes was born of a mixed marriage. His father left his mother with 10 children. Now that he is older he has gained persective on the resons his father left. He reflects his father must have felt mis-understood by the community. Richard has memories of him being a gentle, intellegent man who didn’t like to eating tinned food and enjoyed listening to Nat King Cole.

He recalls his mother spent many hours in the garden planting, no matter what the weather. She woke up in the early hours of the morning to catch snails.

His family was not very rich but he recalls there were always people coming into the house to help out and look after the children.

Rhodes finds inspiration in the perfection he sees in nature where decay gives rise to new growth. His other interests are music, meditation and reading the holy scroll. He has completed a number of workshops and is dedicated and consistent with his art.
