Gerhard Richter – Abstraktes Bild (715-6), 1990









The first foremost of a colour initially become dreamlike blurred, which were appropriated from a moment found in past, present, and future and which explored the relationship between representation and abstraction,

The approach reversed course as a colouring experimented further with pure abstraction,

Typically starting with simple smears of paint or a colouring composition methodically building up and deconstructing the layers of colour

In deep shades of emptiness and darkness striations, is a particularly dark moment of how the dystopia to lean toward the more structured and minimalist end of abstraction.
