Gerhard Richter
Abstract Painting (911-3)
Marian Goodman Gallery
   1  2  3  4  

by Jerry Saltz

Decades ago, Gerhard Richter found a painterly philosopherís stone. Like Jackson Pollock before him, he discovered something that had been in painting all along, always overlooked or discounted. Just as Pollock used the drip to meld process and product, Richter "found" and used the smudge and the blur to ravish the eye, creating works of psychic and physical power.
