Bender Gallery is delighted to announce the US representation of international artist Marco Reichert. Berlin-based Reichert is an emerging abstract painter who is challenging our ideas of what contemporary art is by using traditional painting techniques in conjunction with experimental “painting machines” to create multi-layered artworks. On the one hand, there is a classical pictorial methodology linked to materials and painting in the way we traditionally think of. On the other hand, there is an overtly technical-digital component through the construction of homemade machines as “robot designers” made by the artist himself. Reichert’s work is reflective of today’s society, a society that is increasingly dominated by computers and technology. We may like it or not, but technology’s influence on our everyday lives is undeniable.
