Daniel Richter “Chromos Goo Bugly” at Galerie im Taxispalais, Innsbruck

The Galerie im Taxispalais is showing the first survey exhibition in Austria of work by painter Daniel Richter, who is one of the most important German artists of his generation. Richter’s work not only reflects the fundamental change that painting as a medium has gone through; his paintings are also remarkable for their sensually and intellectually associative, intertwined interpretations and analyses of art and society. This show presents Daniel Richter‘s creative production since the turn of the millennium and so concentrates on his figurative works. Among the 23 paintings selected in close cooperation with the artist are key works from the past 14 years as well as new pieces being shown here for the first time. On the basis of significant milestones in his artistic development, the exhibition ranges from Richter’s first figurative paintings to the present day and so visualises his thematic and stylistic progress.
