Step into the world of German artist Daniel Sambo-Richter at Galerie Sara Lily Perez this April. The solo exhibition invites you to explore the complexities of human conflict through a selection of the artist's non-figurative, landscape, and portrait paintings. Sambo-Richter's works delve into complex conflicts that are a central object of reflection. Through his portraits, the artist captures extreme situations of war, abuse, political and social values, and role clichés, often featuring famous personalities such as Leni Riefenstahl, Erich Honecker, and Armstrong Custer. These historical figures' contributions to history and biography are reflected in the paintings through a contemporary perspective, reinterpreting their relevance and making them visible once again. In addition, Sambo-Richter's landscapes follow an artistic tradition ranging from Romanticism to Expressionism and were initially inspired by climate change. However, they have evolved into larger themes, reflecting radical societal changes. Through these landscape paintings, the artist provides a mirror for our surroundings, transferring social and cultural processes and questioning them. On the surface, Sambo-Richter's works may seem honest and perhaps violent in their portrayal of humanity. Yet, on closer inspection, there is a hopeful quality that creates a contrast, reflecting reality. Don't miss this opportunity to experience the artist's thought-provoking and emotive work at Galerie Sara Lily Perez.
