The paintings in Precipice follow on from earlier works that considered the growing obsolescence of libraries and archives. For this exhibition Reichelt takes ordinary objects and office stationary, strips them of their context and presents them in a fresh tableaux. These items, which were at one time essential to rational organization and workplace efficiencies, are facing redundancy as we turn our backs more and more on the analogue, in favor of the digital. Reichelt is a stunning realist painter and her medium enforces her message, affirming the place of painting in a world of digital saturation.
The 20th Anniversary Issue of Art Collector Magazine features Reichelts work on the cover and contains an insightful article about her practice.
