Colour Chart Art

“Art is the highest form of hope…”

Gerhard Richter

The first living artist to sell a painting for over $100 Million is Gerhard Richter. In the 1960s, the German born artist began to produce a series of pieces referred to as the colour charts. Although nearly always abstract, his work usually consists of blurred strokes and has a primal looseness. Every few years he does return to technically tight abstact works, Typically they explore colour and tonality. An excellent example is Stripes, which we see here on the right. This painting appeals to me greatly. Perhaps because it looks so similar to my Fountain Pen Companion ink visualisation chart, I posted in a prior blog. #inkorart #letsmakelemonade
