Gerhard Richter, “Muot Selvas. Piz Güz, Piz Lad”, 1992

Gerhard Richter is a very well known German artist works with painting, photography, and even glass. I love his body of work where he adds paint directly over photographs, especially when he matches colors within the image or contrasts them with something very vibrant and different. The combinations of mediums is very hard to do and I think he has found a way to do so flawlessly and elegantly… In this piece he is painting with oils directly onto photographs, smearing them, creating a split reality, both ordinary and abstract. Of course, given some of my latest works, I take interest in his photo paintings. See more at
