Born in New Zealand in 1977, Richard Maloy is an Auckland based artist. Maloy completed a Masters of Fine Arts at Auckland University’s Elam School of Fine Art in 2001. He works in a wide range of media, including sculpture, photography, video and installation. Maloy was awarded the inaugural Fulbright-Wallace award in 2009 and travelled to the United States of America as a visiting Fulbright Scholar in 2010, to take up a three-month artist residency at the Headlands Center of the Arts in San Francisco. More recently Maloy created the large-scale installation Yellow Structure for the curated section of Encounters Art Basel Hong Kong. In 2013 Maloy exhibited All the things I did, an exhibition of artistic material from Maloy's time as an art student. The work is part of a larger archive which includes over 5,000 items of Maloy's art school material acquired by the Chartwell Collection and housed at the Auckland Art Gallery Toi o Tamaki.
Within the residency Maloy plans to make an archive of moving image works, comprised of many short videos each documenting a performative based action with found materials that focus on his hands, body and the physical working of the material itself. The work will refer to notions of the ‘artist model’ as a learning tool used in art education, where a student uses another artist's work to influence and learn from.
