Back to the Future: The Building as Artifact in Daniel Rich's Newest Work
My admiration for Daniel Rich’s architecturally-inspired paintings and reverence for buildings as silent tomes of our existence, as well as his ability to imbue a city or structure with such strength and character, has only grown since our last conversation in Juxtapoz a few years back. During this time when office buildings and stadiums, places constructed and designed beholden to capitalism or sport, fall victim to 2020’s Rich’s most recent body of work may be his most sublime and urgent to date.
