Gerhard Richter: Painting in Paris

The Marian Goodman Gallery in Paris has just unveiled an exhibition of new work by contemporary artist Gerhard Richter, entitled Painting 2010-2011, featuring two new series of paintings and a sculpture 6 Standing Glass Panes.

The sculpture 6 Standing Glass Panes is made of 6 parallel glass panels assembled in a steel structure, which is part of a series of three dimensional glass constructions that the artist has been creating since 2002.  These works refer to the idea of painting as a window onto the world, or a reflection of all that passes in front of it. By reflecting both the gallery space and the viewers themselves, the sculpture can be considered both a work of architecture as well as a painting.


The first series of paintings ‘Perizade’ (2010) was created by pouring liquid paint freely on glass plates. Here the material of the paint is present and the forms undulate, providing a contrast to the big digital prints entitled ‘Strip’ (2011), which are composed of a rigorous system of parallel lines.


His next retrospective entitled Panorama is organized in conjunction with the Tate Modern, London (6 October 2011 – 8 January 2012), the Neue Nationalgalerie, Berlin (12 February – 13 May 2012), and the Centre Pompidou, Paris (6 June – 24 September 2012), making this show an exceptional opportunity to experience Richter’s work on a more intimate scale before it hits the major museums.
