My work is concerned not with objective reality but rather the emotions that objects and events arouse within a person, reactions—positive or negative—especially the understanding of the self within the viewer. I deal with relevant social issues, equality, empowerment and psychological conditions. Distortion, exaggeration, and fantasy are the filters through which I paint the modern world.

I believe in equality and I want my work to reflect that. My work is different—it is not conventional, academic, or even the new modernism. I am creating a new avant-garde. I am an internationally known award winning expressionist artist; inspired mostly by Toulouse-Lautrec, Edvard Munch, Picasso, Matisse and the German Expressionists.

– Ric Conn.
