Robert Richter
'Strip Mall' original oil on wood painting signed by Robert Richter

2013

$7,300

About

This painting, 'Strip Mall,' contains the humor common to Robert Richter's oeuvre, presenting a view of the kind of strip mall and parking lot so common to contemporary life. Each storefront has the sign of the business contained within, from tax services and loan offices to a shipping company and a nutrition supplement retailer. Though it could reflect any such retail mall in the United States, this particular strip mall is located on the corner of West Gate Boulevard and William Cannon Drive in Austin, Texas. This banal urban architecture is the tongue-in-cheek subject that makes Richter's paintings so endearing an surprising. 24 x 48 inches, painting 31 x 55 inches, frame Titled, dated, signed in pencil & stamped with initial on verso Housed in a frame of the artist's design and construction Born in Milwaukee, Robert Richter has been painting from the age of eight. His unique paintings are hand carved on wood as well as hand carved frames that become an integral part of the paintings. The artist comments, “I want my paintings to be stunning from across the room, to beckon, as all good paintings should. And then close up, what a surprise!” The artist lived in New York where he painted literally everything from stage sets to mural commissions. He painted store front windows, lithographs from aluminum plates for actors, T-shirts, costumes, curtains, wall hangings, furniture and floors. His unique experiences, intellect, extraordinary color sensibility result in a stunning style with flavors of Avery, Grant Wood and Matisse, but mostly himself.
