  • Catalogue Essay

    “… I didn’t want to paint fresh or solid bodies … The figures in my paintings arise from a disembodied view and from my interest in infrared heat, CCTV , night vision devices, paranoid visions that you have when you’re on drugs or alcohol. I am interested in the nocturnal light, when you are out and about in the dark and see far-away neon lights, petrol pumps, people standing around; that type of dissolution into something that is non-spatial. This is where my figures come from …’’ (Daniel Richter, in conversation with Mela Maresch and Andreas Hoffer in June 2009, published in Daniel Richter, exh. cat., Essl Museum – Contemporary Art, Vienna, 2009, p. 14)
