Richard Hines has been engaged with a lens-based practice throughout his academic training over the last ten years. He holds three degrees: a Bachelor of Arts in International Development Studies (University of Winnipeg, 1999), a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Photography (University of Manitoba, 2004) and a Master of Fine Arts in Photography and Media Art (Nova Scotia College of Art & Design University, 2006). His large format Chromogenic prints capture in-between moments that speak to emotional connection and detachment as well as intimacy and distance between the members of his immediate family. Mining his experiences growing up, and his more recent experiences as a husband and father, Hines exposes the emotional complexities of even the most pedestrian activities of familial life.
He has exhibited predominantly in group exhibitions at various institutions, including: aceartinc, Beaverbrook Art Gallery, Eyelevel Gallery, Gallery 44, Owens Art Gallery, Winnipeg Art Gallery, and the Art Gallery of Windsor. His work has been reviewed and published by Border Crossings magazine, Fuse magazine, C magazine, Canadian Art magazine, The Globe and Mail, and the Winnipeg Free Press. Previous catalogue entries to his credit include: Greater Midwestern International XX (Missouri State University Art Gallery, 2005); Regeneration: 50 Photographers of Tomorrow (Thames and Hudson, 2005); Flash Forward 2006: Emerging Photographers from Canada, United Kingdom and the United States (Magenta Publishing, 2006); supernovas (Winnipeg Art Gallery, 2006); and Performing Home (Gallery 44, 2007). Hines' s photographs are in the public collections of Owens Art Gallery, Canada Council Art Bank, and Nova Scotia Art Bank.
