New Overpainted Photographs

March 3rd, 2010

Overpainted Photographs by Gerhard Richter is an ongoing series where he overpaints his own snapshots. I’ve posted some before, but I still like them. If you’re in Tokyo you can go and see some of them at the WAKO Works of Art till this Saturday.

    The effect is as if you are looking outdoors thru a window w/ various dirty, rain, smudgy stuff. Interesting.

    I very like them. This is how i understand what is happening in peoples mind as they see something in abstract work. It is always little bit hidden…

    I agree that these are quite weak (although unimaginabely expensive!) but they have to be taken in context with the whole of his work. Having said that I do quite like them.
