Richard Pasquarelli’s precise, hard-edged oil paintings and watercolors investigate the physical presence of psychological states of mind. Through research into the psychology of hoarding, obsessive-compulsive disorder, quantum science and eastern philosophy, Pasquarelli seeks a better understanding of the relationships between our minds and the objects in the world around us.
