Richter’s Incandescent Show

Seascape (Sea-Sea) Seestück (See-See) Oil on canvas

Now there are no priests or philosophers left, artists are the most important people in the world.

For the second time I viewed Gerhard Richter’s exhibition. Tate Modern is showing 50 years of work, from early history paintings to the breathtaking still lifes of today. The breadth of the work is overwhelming, exquisite portraits and huge, garish abstract paintings. I spent two hours wandering from room to room, unable to settle, disturbed by the jarring juxtaposition of styles. Don’t miss the show.
