Meaning & Analysis

The practice of overpainting has been key to Gerhard Richter’s works ever since he started to experiment with the medium of photography. In such artworks as Firenze, Richter covers photographs with vibrant swirls of colours, applying the paint directly to the photographic surface. The artist commented in the context of his practice: “I do not pursue any particular intentions, system, or direction. I do not have a programme, a style, a course to follow. I have brought not being interested in specialist problems, working themes, in variations towards mystery. I shy away from all restrictions, I do not know what I want, I am inconsistent, indifferent, passive; I like things that are indeterminate and boundless, and I like persistent uncertainty”.
