Richter's posters by BLOGitse

Photo-paintings and the Blur

Many of these paintings are made in a multi-step process of representations. He starts with a photograph, which he has found or taken himself, and projects it onto his canvas, where he traces it for exact form.

Taking his color palette from the photograph, he paints to replicate the look of the original picture.

His hallmark “blur”—sometimes a softening by the light touch of a soft brush, sometimes a hard smear by an aggressive pull with his squeegee—has two effects:

1. It offers the image a photographic appearance; and

2. Paradoxically, it testifies the painter’s actions, both skilled and coarse,

and the plastic nature of the paint itself.

In some paintings blurs and smudges are severe enough to disrupt the image; it becomes hard to understand or believe. The subject is nullified. In these paintings, images and symbols (such as landscapes, portraits, and news photos) are rendered fragile illusions, fleeting conceptions in our constant reshaping of the world.

    Katos vaan, olet käynyt Richterin näyttelyssä. Minulla on -heh heh – jonkinlainen “suhde” Richteriin, kun meillä on yhteinen lääkäri ja olen nähnyt hänet odotushuoneessa ja hän on lahjoittanut sille lääkärille yhden grafiikkansa. Ja last but not least, hänen suunnittelemansa iso lasi-ikkuna on Kölnin tuomiokirkossa.

    Upeita !Tuo tekniikka on muutenkin tosi kiinnostava. Täällä näin just näyttelyn ,jossa paikallinen artisti käytti samanlaista tekniikkaa ja kuvat olivat häkellyttävän upeita!

    This is great art! I like how we view these and try to determine if it is real or an illusion. It prompts us to linger and check our senses again and again. Art should make us think a little bit – that’s what is so enjoyable about any and all art! That gallery building is artistic all by itself too!

    What a fabulous artist. I enjoyed you commentary on how he approached and carries out his art. He is amazing. No wonder the queue was so long. I am sure the show was well worth the wait. His blur is so delicate. What a wonderful post. genie

    All the art work is lovely – I especially like the girl reading.

    However, what REALLY caught my eye is the toilet paper going down the back, which IS OF COURSE what I call “the right way” to roll!!!!
