Gerhard Richter: Kunsthaus Zürich

The Gerhard Richter exhibition at the Kunsthaus in Zurich is coming to a close soon.

Richter is famous for his highly abstract images of mountains, parks and cities that, through painting, further explore the potential of an abstraction that has its origins in photography. The works alternate between landscape motifs depicted as reproductions of originals and a “self-referential materiality of colour expressed through broad brushstrokes”.

Most famously, his two-part work ‘St. Gallen’ (1989) pushed abstraction so far that even locals were unable to recognize any topographic or architectural features of their own city.
