"Cage", by Gerhard Richter
Gerhard Richter is a German artist, born in 1932. The title derives from Richter’s admiration for the work of American composer John Cage (1912-92), who once famously said “I have nothing to say and I am saying it”. Richter played recordings of Cage’s minimalist music while he was working on these canvases.
Richter was inspired by John Cage’s rejection of intuition and his total randomness, in that both men resorted to chance as their work progressed, resulting in constant flux.
In “Cage”, Richter’s techniques included using squeegees and letting the paint stop where it wanted to, drying and rippling where chance dictated. The result suggests running rivers and veils of mist. In places the surface has been scraped to suggest concrete walls.
