Finally most of my boxes are unpacked and I am starting to feel that I have a home again. We are waiting for our new sofa though and most of our artwork is still in New York.
Early this morning I therefore came to think of what Art I wish I could surround myself with, and I came to remember the Gerhard Richter room at the Tate Modern. How I wish I could enfold myself in these large canvases, what fine ambience they give, what composition they portray.
These paintings were inspired and named after the great American composer John Cage (1912-1992), and the complicated, brilliant avant-garde music that he left us.
"I have nothing to say and I'm saying it"
"I don't know what I want I am inconsistent, non-committal, passive, I like the indefinite,
the boundless, I like continual uncertainty"
These paintings were done in 2006 (lent to the Tate from a private collection). Gerhard Richter moves on, he is in a constant evolution. His art is really indefinite and boundless. I am always excited to see his work. October 2011, the Tate Modern will show a chronological retrospective of Richter's work (he turns 80 this year) and I can't wait to see it.
