GERHARD RICHTER (né en 1932)

 
Widely recognized as one of the most consequential artists of our time, Gerhard Richters career now rivals that of Picasso's in terms of productivity and genius. The multi-faceted subject matter, ranging from slightly out-of-focus photographic oil paintings to Kelly-esque grid paintings to his "squeegee" works, Richter never settles for repeating the same thought- but is constantly evolving his vision. Richter has been honored by significant retrospective exhibitions, including the pivotal 2002 show,  "Gerhard Richter: Forty Years of Painting," at the Museum of Modern Art, New York.  <br><br>"Abstraktes Bild 758-2" (1992) comes from a purely abstract period in Richter's work- where the message is conveyed using a truly physical painting style, where applied paint layers are distorted with a wooden "Squeegee" tool. Essentially, Richter is sculpting the layers of paint, revealing the underlayers and their unique color combinations; there is a degree of "art by chance". If the painting does not work, Richter will move on- a method pioneered by Jackson Pollock decades earlier.  <br><br>Richter is included in prominent museums and collections worldwide, including the Tate, London, The Museum of Modern Art, New York, and the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, among many others.

"Le gris est la couleur... la plus importante de toutes... sans opinion, sans rien, ni l'un ni l'autre." -Gerhard Richter

Histoire

Largement reconnu comme l'un des artistes les plus importants de notre époque, la carrière de Gerhard Richter rivalise désormais avec celle de Picasso en termes de productivité et de génie. Avec des sujets aux multiples facettes, allant des peintures à l'huile photographiques légèrement floues aux peintures quadrillées à la Kelly, en passant par ses œuvres à la raclette, Richter ne se contente jamais de répéter la même pensée, mais fait évoluer sa vision en permanence. Richter a été honoré par d'importantes expositions rétrospectives, dont l'exposition charnière de 2002, "Gerhard Richter : Quarante ans de peinture", au Musée d'art moderne de New York.

Abstraktes Bild 758-2 (1992) provient d'une période purement abstraite de l'œuvre de Richter. Pour faire passer son message, Richter utilise un style de peinture véritablement physique. Il déforme ses couches de peinture à l'aide d'une "raclette" en bois, révélant ainsi les sous-couches et leurs combinaisons de couleurs uniques. En sculptant la peinture de cette manière, il fait intervenir un certain degré d'"art par hasard". Richter réagissait à ces gestes, continuant à ajouter, étaler et soustraire de la peinture, créant une surface texturée avec un sens de l'espace et du mouvement.

Richter fait partie de musées et de collections de premier plan dans le monde entier, notamment la Tate, à Londres, le Museum of Modern Art, à New York, et le San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, parmi beaucoup d'autres.
