Ger­hard Richter: The Life of Im­ages

Where Gold Coast - - What’s On Brisbane -

Ger­hard Richter has proven his re­mark­able com­mand of al­most ev­ery style and genre of paint­ing over the past 50 years. From ro­man­tic land­scapes to vis­ceral over­painted pho­to­graphs, ten­der per­sonal por­traits to mon­u­men­tal ab­stracts, this exhibition gives a de­tailed in­sight into the work of one of the world’s most in­flu­en­tial liv­ing artists. Ex­clu­sive to Bris­bane’s Gallery of Mod­ern Art, “Ger­hard Richter: The Life of Im­ages” is the Ger­man artist’s first ma­jor Aus­tralian exhibition, with loans from pub­lic and pri­vate col­lec­tions in Europe, North Amer­ica, Asia and Australia, in­clud­ing the artist’s own col­lec­tion. Ex­plor­ing Richter’s end­less ca­pac­ity to shift form, this un­prece­dented exhibition is a tes­ta­ment to his tech­ni­cal vir­tu­os­ity, rig­or­ous work prac­tices and un­par­al­leled in­flu­ence on con­tem­po­rary art. On­go­ing, Gallery of Mod­ern Art, Grey Street, South Bank. 3840 7303. qagoma.qld.gov.au
