This painting, 'Store Tree,' presents a landscape, but with the humor and irony common to Robert Richter's oeuvre. In the image, a bright yellow tree dominates the composition with footpaths and sidewalks drawing the viewer's eye into the distance. This highly manicured garden, with kempt bushes and green shrubbery, grows alongside the brick walls of a big box department store. This ironic fusion of American consumerist culture alongside idealized nature is a tongue-in-cheek acknowledgment of apparent contradictions in contemporary life. 36 x 48 inches, painting 43 x 55 inches, frame Titled, dated, signed in pencil and stamped with initial on verso Housed in a frame of the artist's design and construction
