Research

research overview

  • Professor Richard Saxton is an artist whose work focuses primarily on rural knowledge and landscape. Saxton’s work is conceived through an interdisciplinary cultural framework, and has been described as contemporary vernacular, non-heroic, and an art infused with rural experience without subscribing to any one genre or culture. Saxton is the founder of M12 STUDIO, an interdisciplinary collaborative art studio focused on context and place in the rural American West. M12 projects allow for research, fieldwork, design and construction to merge, creating a layered collection of artworks, images and artifacts. Saxton's artworks take form through sculptural installation, sound and video, books, vinyl, and photographic and research-based archives.
