GRIMM is proud to announce ‘Music for Orgies’, the third solo exhibition by Daniel Richter with the gallery in Amsterdam.
In these new works, figuration has been fragmented and distilled to a minimum. Sharp lines depict the contours of body parts, strengthened by vivid, vibrant hues that create a suggestion of movement. The interplay of the strong silhouettes and the subtle gradation of color in the background balances between abstraction and figuration. In this way Richter’s paintings liberate in their openness to interpretation. Undercurrents of violence, isolation, awkwardness and oppression abound, while absurdity, surrealism, confusion and the pure attractiveness of colors and shapes lend the works a ludic quality.
