Welcome to my online Journal where i hope to share my thoughts, feeling, inspirations, processes, problem solving, and completed works as well as works in progress.
Gerhard Richter is a German visual artist. Richter has produced abstract as well as photorealistic paintings, and also photographs and glass pieces. I have seen his works at the Tate in London on many occasions and have always enjoyed being with them. There scale is large and dominating and i find the apparent subject of each piece changes with each viewing. As with most abstract are beauty as well as meaning in in the eye of the beholder. Having explored abstract painting for my final piece of year one i found his tecniques interesting, there are no small brushes of fussiness when making these works, the final images are a result of the process and accident and purpose seem to meet and come to balance seamlessly. Below is a short video of him at work.
