the highest point; the top or apex
StudioTrouble™ is pleased to present an exhibition of new works on paper, dibond panel and prints by the artist Daniel Rich. Rich translates photographs into paintings that call attention to implicit political and social narratives transcribed in the built environment. This exhibition will be Rich’s first solo presentation in Berlin and is accompanied by a limited edition screen print release in collaboration with JB Institute.

The title of the exhibition – (co)vertex – is a combination of the adverb “covert” meaning not openly acknowledged or displayed, and the noun “vertex” meaning the highest point. Drawing on source imagery depicting opaque and moody building facades and empty spaces, Rich appropriates imagery sourced from news photographs and online sources that reference particular moments in history.
