DANIEL RICHTER

‘The dynamic in my work is mainly based on pushing and shoving, or on elements that are being confronted by each other – mingling, pushing, pulling.’

– Daniel Richter

 

Celebrated for his riotous compositions of tangled limbs, his fantastical landscapes and his prescient depictions of socio-political events, Daniel Richter’s newest paintings are populated by dynamic, writhing bodily forms that appear to levitate and collide, animated by vivid colouration and heavy black outlines. These large-scale works are influenced by Greek mythology, in particular the flaying of the satyr Marsyas, who was punished for his act of hubris in challenging Apollo to a contest of music.

 

‘For Daniel Richter, art is never style, but always method, an attitude that serves the discovery of truth.’

– Max Hollein, Director, The Metropolitan Museum of Art
