Daniel Richter: Spagotzen

 

Edited by Arne Ehmann.

 

Embracing an overtly psychedelic aesthetic, German artist Daniel Richter (born 1962) creates bright, almost fluorescent, paintings that swell with activity and nervous intensity. Spagotzen includes the type of anarchic canvases that have made Richter famous. Rife with violence, these images feature boldly colored figures writhing amidst fiery urban scenes. In other works, couples and trios appear in desolate or otherwise deserted landscapes, blurring the line between an apocalyptic end and an Edenic beginning.
