So long, Daddy

‘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

‘I find artworks, especially paintings, most interesting when they seek to convey something to the viewer that is not entirely translatable through language, or even reason. When art fulfils its promise, it expands something within us, and it offers some kind of truth – whatever construction that may be.’

– Daniel Richter

So long, Daddy
