German, b. 1977

Daniel Rich’s meticulous acrylic paintings of the built environment are devoid of human presence, and explore the way architecture and urban space reflect our lived experience and political and social structures. In a labor-intensive process, Rich works from Google images, newspapers, and photographs, translating them into paintings with hand-cut stencils, mixed color, paintbrushes, and a squeegee to create smooth surfaces. In Drone (2011), Rich reproduces a detail from a U.S. drone, while Foxconn Shenzhen (2012) depicts a staircase from within the notorious Chinese factory in which Apple products are manufactured. “The architectural image is represented to introduce a dialogue about changing political power structures, failed utopias, the impacts of ideological struggles, war and natural upheavals,” he has said.
