THE SILENT MAN
The Silent Man is an exhibition of never-before-seen work that pays tribute to a father, veteran, and artist named Richard DeCosmis.
The exhibition remembers a veteran who fought in WWII and discovers an artist who passed away a year ago. Serving as a police officer for the rest of his career, DeCosmis expressed tragedy through secret experimentation with sculpture and oil paint, resulting in a body of work that blurs the lines of reality. His family discovered his artistic talent and 119 works in a garage after his death.
Richard Decosmis was a New Jersey native whose practice focuses on drawing, painting, and sculpture. His works teeter between the figurative, the literal, and the abstract.
