Triplus, Number 3

Ron Richmond, 2005

In the 20th and 21st centuries, conceptual works have supplemented more traditional renderings of the Savior by focusing on ideas, rather than on objects or narrative representations. Often the figure of Christ is not even present in these works as shown above; signs and symbols replace the human form as in this painting by Ron Richmond.

Likewise, in this carefully rendered piece, Richmond conveys the all-encompassing yet simple nature of Christ’s Atonement. Using colors of red and white traditionally emblematic of sin and redemption, Richmond attempts a comprehensive depiction of the Savior’s Atonement, as represented in Moses 6:60: “For by the water ye keep the commandment; by the Spirit ye are justified, and by the blood ye are sanctified”.

This piece is currently on display.

More About Richmond

Ron Richmond (born 1941) is a contemporary American painter based in Utah who focuses on spiritual still lifes. Almost entirely devoid of the human figure, Richmond’s paintings speak a symbolic language that offer layers of meaning through allegory and metaphor.

His unique paintings are often reductive, even minimalist in form, yet rich in spiritual and metaphysical content. According to Richmond his paintings should “evoke a feeling of what should come next in the human experience.”
