Richard Raiselis

Associate Professor of Art, Painting

Richard Raiselis is recognized for his sweeping urban vistas and for his complex examinations of vegetation and landscape. His paintings are concerned as much with the process of seeing as they are with the things shown. Raiselis’ work from 2012-2018 takes advantage of lofty perspectives attained above Boston’s financial district and Kenmore Square areas to develop elaborately observed treatments of dense views of structures and space.

Raiselis is an Associate Professor at the Boston University College of Fine Arts, and his work has been shown at the National Academy of Design in New York, the Austin Museum of Art at Laguna Gloria in Austin, Texas, and the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, among others.
