This painting, 'Strip Mall,' contains the humor common to Robert Richter's oeuvre, presenting a view of the kind of strip mall and parking lot so common to contemporary life. Each storefront has the sign of the business contained within, from tax services and loan offices to a shipping company and a nutrition supplement retailer. Though it could reflect any such retail mall in the United States, this particular strip mall is located on the corner of West Gate Boulevard and William Cannon Drive in Austin, Texas. This banal urban architecture is the tongue-in-cheek subject that makes Richter's paintings so endearing an surprising.
