Grit Richter’s art sits at a crossroads between painting, sculpting, and installation. “I really like to work in different mediums, and I literally love to explore new mediums and techniques,” said Richter in an interview with Art of Choice. “It‘s always a step further, a supplement, something to add to my visual catalog of possibilities, which feels very exciting for me.”
Besides her love for diversity, each medium has its own special qualities which Richter’s interested in bringing out, mixing those later together with other mediums. Apart from art, she also has a passion for underground electronic music, which she explores by working as a DJ and initiating underground club events. In other words: she treats life as her own personal playground.
Nevertheless, she admits she sees herself primarily as a painter. “I love oil painting and it is what I do most,” she told Art of Choice. “But I also create mostly all of my works in different mediums from the point of view as a painter. So, I would say I see the definition of ‘painting’ in a very wide range. When I do an installation, bringing all my works together in a setting, it’s like composing a huge room painting to me.”
Based in Hamburg, Germany, her works were exhibited in numerous solo and group shows. But you can also follow her online, through her Instagram page:
