Daniel Richter

Trevelfast

2004
Oil on canvas

283 x 232cm

An array of magic lies in Richter’s Trevelfast. In a nightmarish scene, he paints a ghoulish rider desperate for escape from the unnatural powers of the night or the blazing red suggestion of fire. Richter handles paint with an unwieldy passion: every colour in his controlled chaos retains its purity. His paintings radiate with their own internal light, bringing his dreamy scenes of contemporary fable to life with timeless authority.
