Daniel Richter: Hello, I Love You

 

In the last two years Daniel Richter has exposed himself to a process of renewal and the result is remarkably impressive.

 

This process has resulted in works which represent an impressive further development: first groups of paintings which seek a completely new kind of confrontation, which allow coarse, simplified areas of colour and significance to collide on the level of form and content: diagram-like colour compositions which reveal their physicality and their representative potential only slowly and reluctantly.

 

These are works with a striking but also endangered, sordid aesthetic and a precarious substance extracted from the abstract.
