From Wikipedia, the free Encyclopedia

Jesse Richards (July 17, 1975–present) is a painter, filmmaker and photographer in New Haven, Connecticut and has been affiliated with the British art movement Stuckism for some time.

Before his involvement with the Stuckist art group beginning in 2001, Richards studied film production at the School of Visual Arts, directed plays including "Hamlet" and "Look Back In Anger" for the New Haven Theatre Company, and made short romance/punk films.

In 1999, Richards was arrested for reckless burning, destruction of property and disorderly conduct. After the charges were dropped, he began painting.

Richards founded the first Stuckism center in the United States in 2002, and helped organize shows including the anti-Iraq war art show "The War On Bush", including the protest "Clown Trial of George W. Bush", which took place on the steps of the New Haven Federal Courthouse.

Richards' short Super-8 punk film co-directed with Nicholas Watson, Shooting at the Moon premiered the following year at the New York International Independent Film and Video Festival.

In 2004, Richards and fellow filmmaker Harris Smith co-founded Remodernist Film and Photography, a new Remodernist group attempting to introduce Remodernist/Stuckist values into film and photography. Also in 2004 Richards was included in the Stuckists' first national gallery show, The Stuckists Punk Victorian, which was held at the Walker Art Gallery in Liverpool.
