Richard Higlett is an interdisciplinary artist currently based in Cardiff, Wales, UK. The idea for a work dictates the medium in which it manifests in the tangible, and sometimes intangible world. This leads his practices into working with materials which are unfamiliar and part of a continuous process of learning and chance.
