Gerhard Richter – Tate Modern, London

Since the 1960s, Gerhard Richter has immersed himself in a rich and varied exploration of painting.

I’m looking forward to going to this exhibition.

His career has been defined by versatility and innovation, his work covers virtually every painterly discipline and art methodology; his work can be figurative, abstract and even conceptual. Richter once declared that: “I use different styles like clothes: it’s a way to disguise myself.”
Examples of his work include, 4900 Colours from 2007, which consisted of bright squares that are randomly arranged in a grid pattern to create a kaleidoscopic of colour. It was created around the same time he designed the south transept window of Cologne Cathedral.

Death by Sushi' Fish can kill me. When I was very small (maybe 3 or 4 years old) my grandfather, who lost the sight of one eye from a bullet fired by a German sniper (fortunately not a very good one) during the Battle of the Somme in World War 1, wiped my face with the corner of his apron, an apron he had used to wipe his filleting knife on. He was a grocery shopkeeper who specialized in wet fish. I think I am an artist (?)
