about the artist

The coastal experience is like none other when it comes to recreating the sense of light and color. The endless combinations of sun, clouds, sand, and waves meld to make a continuously changing visual model that evokes a sense of relaxation and comfort. It is my ambition to recreate these visual sensations to be enjoyed all year, whether near the coast or far inland. While on the beach, the bay, or the boardwalk, I am constantly amazed at the reflections of light and ever-changing pallet of colors to capture and as an endless source of inspiration.


Rick Lang was originally educated in marine sciences along the New Jersey coast. He spent years traveling the American coastline on various marine fisheries and coastal projects to restore and maintain our coastal resources. Mr. Lang incorporates the colors from the lush greens of the Pacific Northwest to the soft coral of southern Florida that he admired during his travels along the Atlantic and Pacific coasts. During that time, Mr. Lang acquired and honed his skills in translating the scenery around him to canvas. Being fortunate enough to be in so many fantastic coastal places, Mr. Lang developed a style that captures the vibrant colors, light and feel of the coastal community. In 1991, Mr. Lang moved to the Midwest where he became involved in research and technology. But he continued to maintain his passion for coastal experiences. In 2003, Mr. Lang returned to coastal New Jersey with a stronger passion for painting. Mr. Lang’s paintings are created to allow the ‘shore experience’ to be enjoyed throughout the entire year. His works allow the viewer to immerse themselves in views carefully recreated to be familiar and comforting. Mr. Lang currently resides in Marmora, NJ. He can be contacted by e-mail at RLang@SandAndWaves.com.
