Torsten Richter reveals everyday wonders at Robert Kananaj Gallery
Torsten Richter (drawing)
Untitled, detail (graphite pencil on paper, 2011)
Torsten Richter's drawings are of life-sized everyday objects: a scythe, a hayfork, a discarded wooden board and chisel. His focal point is drawing the object on a white surface, a sheet of paper, calling attention to the simple functionality of the device with amazing sensuality. The insignificant become wondrous to the viewer's eyes.
