About the Artist

Surrealism is the inspiration for Hagerty’s art, from his early watercolors of the 1970’s to the brilliant oil paintings of today. Surrealism is expansive, psychoanalytical, experimental and pluralistic – a good fit for Hagerty’s world view.

Richard Hagerty is a polymath, driven in many ways. He paints as a means of understanding the world and his place in it. The imagery that comes out of his mind is surreal, vast, multi-cultural and blended. He spends even more time these days creating art, and sees it as constantly moving forward and evolving.
