Daniel Richter has influenced painting in Germany since the 1990s as few others have. Choosing classical oil painting as his medium, Richter draws on contemporary imagery sourced from聽mass media, popular culture or art history. The聽representation of artificial light, flashlight, thermal image or X-ray enable him to subversively comment on current events, whilst evoking聽an atmosphere of artificiality and nervosity. Stemming from the anarchic movement himself, the theme of total surveillance has been a recurring motif in Daniel Richter鈥檚 艙uvre 鈥 the association with infra-red and thermal imaging cameras is unavoidable, revealing a paranoid view. His work has been exhibited at institutions such as the Hamburger Kunsthalle, the National Gallery of Canada, the Stedelijk Museum in Amsterdam, the Essl Museum in Vienna, Tokyo鈥檚 Mori Art Museum, and the Saatchi Gallery.
