Darick Ritter has dedicated his career to making paintings, drawings, and comics for over 10 years, since graduating in 2005 from the Kansas City Art Institute with a Bachelor’s of Fine Arts, emphasis in painting. Darick currently lives in Merced, CA with his wife Emily Ritter, Assistant Professor of Political Science at UC Merced, and their 2 year old son.
In his words:
My work aims to use the disparate attractions I have to things like religiosity, comics, personal history, biology, and concerns over ecological crises- to make objects that scratch for provisional conclusions about our greatest questions: Who are we? Why are we here? What are we for?…or simply, Just what the hell is going on?
Darick Ritter’s work is on display in the UC Merced Library through January 12th 2016. Visit darickritter.com for more information.
