This painting presents an urban landscape using the humor and irony common to Robert Richter's oeuvre. In the image, a tall green tree dominates the composition, growing out of the yellow and red painted median of a commercial parking lot. Beyond, the walls of a commercial building define the pictorial space of the urban landscape, limiting our view to only a small distance. 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 & stamped with initial on verso Housed in a frame of the artist's design and construction
