If you're in NYC these days, you shouldn't miss out on “Never Forever“, the new solo-show of the incredibly talented Daniel Rich at Peter Blum Gallery. The opening reception will happen on Friday April 13, 6-8pm; the show itself is running until May 26, 2018.
Rich's work is also prominently featured in our new issue “Vehicle“, which should hit selected shops any minute now.
“The paintings in “Never Forever“ offer points of entry to consider architectures’ ability to serve as a symbolic backdrop for unfolding political events and changing power structures. The paintings, most often of the built environment, are always devoid of people—the human figure is implied through the presence and perspective of the viewer. Rich appropriates imagery found in newspapers and online in response to investigative journalism, literature and the news of the day. These source images get digitally altered and meticulously transcribed onto the surface of the painting panels. Each shape of the image then gets stenciled and painted individually with acrylic, creating densely rich, saturated surfaces constructed one shape and color at a time.“
