Galerie Thaddaeus Ropac is pleased to announce an exhibition of a new series of works by Daniel Richter entitled Le Freak, which continues the Hello, I love you series, shown in 2015 at the Kunsthalle Schirn in Frankfurt. The figurative elements of the paintings, which appear to be pornographic, are always dissolving into abstraction. They take a both provocative and whimsical direction to delve into the absurd and strange, notably through a reversal of his own motifs.
Daniel Richter’s works are part of renowned collections worldwide, such as the National Gallery of Canada, Ottawa; Louisiana Museum, Humlebaek; Centre Pompidou, Paris; Kunsthalle Kiel, Kunsthalle Hamburg; Nationalgalerie Berlin; Kunsthalle Stuttgart; Museum der Bildenden Künste Leipzig; Gemeente Museum, The Hague; Contemporary Art Collection of the Federal Republic of Germany; MoMA New York, Denver Art Museum and Musée d’Art Moderne et Contemporain Strasbourg.
