Digital Richter

Famed German painter Gerhard Richter abandoned the traditional brush-on-canvas, embracing technology and making a surprising move toward digital renderings for a new show at Marian Goodman Gallery in NYC. In his “Strip Paintings,” Richter uses his past work to create new, sampling sections from older paintings and using image-editing software to form new imagery. The effect makes for strips of color, hypnotically stacked up on each print. The show is on view through October 13, and a new documentary on the painter was also recently released.
