Daniel Richter, Mainness, 2021, Oil on canvas, 230 x 170 cm

In this presentation of new paintings, Daniel Richter fragments and distills figuration to a minimum with sharp lines depicting the contours of body parts. This gestural approach is strengthened by vivid, vibrant hues that create a suggestion of movement. Richter’s paintings are liberating in their openness to interpretation. Undercurrents of violence, eroticism, isolation, awkwardness and oppression abound, while absurdity, surreal- ism, confusion and the pure attractiveness of colours and shapes lend the works a ludic quality.
