Gerhard Richter at MARIAN GOODMAN GALLERY.wmv

December 22, 2009

James Kalm slips in and records a walk through of this exhibition by Gerhard Richter before he is bounced from the gallery. Richter is undoubtedly one of the most highly regarded painters of his generation and the current Godfather of the German Conceptual painting tradition. This show features works created since 2005 and debuts a series of large near monochromatic light gray paintings that represent an approach to Minimalism that further complicates the artists duel approach to his subjects. A room filling multi-panel piece Sinbad uses a technique of poured paint on the back of clear plastic panels and delivers a decorative impact that much previous work avoided.
