GERHARD RICHTER »ÜBERMALTE FOTOGRAFIEN« – selected by DAVID STRETTELL

»By applying leftover paint from a day’s work in the studio to small 4 x 6 color machine prints, Richter combines two of his many approaches to making art — using photo-based imagery and brightly colored impasto paint. What stays with you is the breadth and consistency of the work (gathered here are 400 images produced over twenty years) and its purely decorative sensibility. To me, the whole collection is brimming over with joy — experimenting with different ways of applying the paint to certain subjects, and in so doing almost inspiring you to start painting your own snaps.«
