Richard Frater

Richard Frater is a New Zealand artist currently based in Berlin.

"New Zealand born, Berlin-based, artist Richard Frater has devoted much of his work during the past five years to exploring human complicity in climate change, it’s visual culture and governing logic, but also—no less importantly—modes of resistance, nurture, action, and co-habitation, however fleeting." - Boaz Levin, Nothing consoles you like despair, Contemporary Hum
