    Information

    Contemporary Fine Arts is pleased to present the eighth solo exhibition with Daniel Richter since 1995.

    In the last twenty years, Daniel Richter’s work has passed through various stages of development. From the initial abstract-ornamental paintings he created between 1994 and 2000 to the works influenced by a politically informed realism from the turn of the millennium, his oeuvre has constantly developed. In this new exhibition, the artist surprises with six new paintings that mark a turning point and after years of the assumed “narrations”, lean on colour and composition again, however, availing from Richter’s examination of landscape in the last decade.

    In these new, still large-sized paintings, colours are exploding and assert themselves to the benefit of the reduction of the figuration.
    Outlined as well as vague and indefinite colour fields are put into the foreground and are crossed and pierced by “colourflashs”. Richter’s new paintings thus elucidate the ambivalence of the juxtaposed concepts of abstraction and figuration- of which the later artist frees himself- and playfully dissolves them.  

    The 1962 born artist lives and works in Berlin.
