Christiane Richter

Christiane Richter (Bielefeld, Germany, 1963) is a unique artist. Her work brings focus on the art of dealing with perception. The questions of the observer’s point of view regarding light, colour and form are central. In Christiane Richter’s art, photography interacts with painting, and within photography, abstract compositions and images interrelate. Christiane Richter works with the possibilities of analogue photography in the digital era.

The intensity of colors in her work emphasizes the clearly defined shapes with their clear-cut lines and vibrating, flickering transitions. Richter does not work with monochromatic, but polychromatic color shapes since she if conscious of the mutual intensification and effect of the polychromatic tendencies. The contrasts between the colors and the dynamically slanted shapes determine the tendencies of direction and emphasis which heighten the glowing presence of the small isolated, poetic tone color.

Christiane Richter’s work was mentioned in New Dawn Paper, when her work was on display at PAN Amsterdam:

“The first thing you notice are the colourful works by Christiane Richter at the Booth of Priveekollektie Contemporary Art | Design. Abstract photographs of leaves and flowers in powerful colours. The gallery about Richter’s works: “Christiane works with a relatively simple camera. Yet still she know how to capture the magical transition of light to color. Her poetic way of working is often compared to pictorial art. The works are untitled deliberately, so the viewer is free to interpret.”
