What's the best way to learn about an artwork that interests me?
Experiencing an artwork in person is the best way. Studio visits and artwork viewings are free and available by appointment, and provide an opportunity to informally view artworks. I will also be able to answer any questions.
What if I cannot personally inspect an artwork?
You might choose to contact me for about a condition report, which is a written description or video of condition of the artwork. These are prepared as a service to prospective buyers upon request and in accordance with my Terms of Service.
Do you offer installment payment plans?
Yes. On purchases over £5,000.
Do you accept commissioned projects?
Can I pay in another currency?
Payment is received in Pounds Stirling (GBP). Sales, use or value added taxes (VAT) may be due on your purchase/s. Before agreeing a purchase, please research any import/export restrictions that may affect your decision.
What shipping options do you provide?
Shipping remains the responsibility of the buyer. I can help compile art transport quotes and arrange storage and collection facilities from my studio
Can you advise on the installation of my artwork?
Yes. I can explain how to install the artwork through step by step instructions and video conference calls to your technician/s. I can also suggest interesting approaches to installing reflective artworks. Sometimes I can recommend local technicians or attend in person.
Does your artwork come with a certificate of authenticity?
Yes. This comprises your original paper invoice and online ownership documents.
What do you advise clients on the selection of frames for your painting?
Ideally there should be no frame. The paintings are, in most cases, designed to the furthest extent of the picture-surface and encroachment, however small it may be, will impair their visual conception.
How can I access my ownership documents?
Sign in through richardparry.studio (from the navbar, right hand side) or scan the QR code on your invoice.
Do you have a returns policy?
Yes. Please ensure the artwork is returned to me within 14 days of leaving my studio (at your risk and cost), in the original condition, securely packaged and including my original delivery documents.
Do you like jazz music?
I don't know.
Do you use environmentally friendly materials?
I don't think so. All artwork is provided "As is".
What do you think of the Zabludowicz Collection?
They're bad aren't they, Zabludowicz?
Are you still art-dealing?
I need the money. We're not all Eddie Peake.
What's your preferred medium?
Painting, Land Art or Field Recording - it changes every five minutes!
I'd like to start making art. How do you recommend I get started?
I don't really know. For me the vision was to make art that didn't exist, because everything else was so unsatisfactory.
Is it true you're best m8s with Prince Harry?
Whatever happened to the Bloomberg paintings?
I knew it was coming. I knew they didn't have the nerve. They were decommissioned after a month. Too powerful.
What's Art Zimbabwe?
Art Zimbabwe is an expanded approach to mail art and contemporary art processes having mainly to do with structural purposes of a particular 'native information'. It is the study of a particular landscape without taking into account any outside influence.
Are there any studios coming up at Lewisham Art House?
I don't know. I'm not involved with allocations.
Are you still working at Christie's?
No way man!
Are there any Richard Parry tote bags left?
Not with me. But maybe I'll make a new edition for ASP 2019.
Do you have any old New Dome catalogues for sale?
No. Maybe try Frenetic Happinness.
