Richard has worked for a-n since 2009; he works for the Online Content Team and occasionally writes for a-n News. He is based in Glasgow.

His art practice is deeply embedded in writing, and visual projects are often narrative and research led. Projects have resulted in solo exhibitions and publishing in volumes such as Gnommero, which he co-edited.

In 2010 he coordinated Transmission Gallery’s archive and resource room. In April 2015 he undertook a research residency in Art Writing with Edinburgh College of Art and Edinburgh Sculpture Workshop. Richard completed the MFA programme at Glasgow School of Art in 2017. Glasgow
