The Other

In Cologne Gerhard Richter is a common presence, as one might expect. In the conference center I saw a couple of pictures by another artist that at first I mistook for Richter. Are they as good? Debatable point, but the fact that it is debatable says something. Close in person comparison of concrete details would be necessary to decide. They seem even more blandly grid like than Richter’s work, but maybe comparable to the Cage series.

One Response to The Other

    Robert if you are looking for opinions I would say in reproductions no they are not as good, their easier reference to the body, perception, traps them a little. They seem more like Manet than Richter, not necessarily a bad thing..
