Great Art: Daniel Richter’s 2001 Paintings

Back to my fave painter most likely living or dead, have I said that before? He’s a living German painter which I know, I’ve said that because I’ve blogged his 2000, 2005 and 2009 artworks so far, right now you are or going to be looking at his paintings from 2001.

Fun fact today or just totally unrelated thing that I’m going type about is someone with the very same name is an actor, most well known for Stanley Kubrick’s 2001: A Space Odyssey of 1968. At the time of casting he was an unknown street mime in New York City but SK gave him the job of choreographing the Dawn of Man sequence. He can be seen in the film as the main Moon-Watcher as credited in the movie. Also relating to who I blogged about a few day ago. Lennon and Ono were huge fans of 2001 movie, John even saying at one point he watch it on a daily basics. Richter once claimed he supplied heroin to both party’s while The Beatles were in the studio in 1969, interesting story linked here.

Anyway, I’m getting very side-track so back to Daniel Richter the artists’ artwork. All paintings are oil on canvas. So two of the four titles are named after places in the world and the other two are in German but English translations, for the the middle two paintings from top down are: Billiard at half past ten and The Right. I don’t know what else to say so I’ll shut-up now!

Amsterdam, 2001

Billard um Halbzehn, 2001

Das Recht, 2001

Tarifa, 2001
Sometimes, I’ve added a photos of what each artist look like so you see them but I’ve not uploaded one of Richter yet so here he is in his studio will his pet cats! 

My song of the day/night is going to have to be Tarifa by Sharon Van Etten from her album Are We There which was released back in 2014:

Cheers 🙂
