My father Richard Allen Sevigny was a magnificently talented painter and sculptor who died in 2004 at the age of 57. My brother James Sevigny and I agreed last year that it would be fitting to put his work online. We hope those who love him as well as those who never met him, will now have access to his creations.

Richard left behind an enormous body of paintings, sculptures, drawings, photographs and digital images. We decided to present his work in blog form, adding things when we are able to do so.

In most cases, my father did not date his work and it’s impossible to indicate when each piece was made. We welcome any information that may help us fill in these information gaps.

The photograph above shows Richard carving a statue of the baptism of Christ. The photograph was taken in Coconut Grove where we lived between April 1969 and April 1970. The finished piece was exhibited at the Bacardi Gallery in Miami, Florida
in 1969.
