FAMOUS ARTIST BIRTHDAY - GERHARDT RICHTER HOMAGE - ABSTRACT POP ART - 30 Paintings Day 9 - GIVEAWAY


GERHARD RICHTER HOMAGE
PAINTING BY SEA DEAN
4" x 4" Mini Master - Famous Artist Birthday
On auction at Daily Paintworks


To view my Gallery or purchase this painting please visit Daily Paintworks. Larger originals or prints may be available by contacting me. 

The Mini Masters are a series where I do homage to famous Artists on their birthday by creating a work inspired by them. Gerhard Richter is such a fascinating Artist. He has created so much diverse work, but in one series he poured liquid paint over photographs and I just had to try it. As I didn't want to collage, I painted an ocean landscape and poured liquid acrylic over that. The end result is a Mini Master in the style of Gerhard Richter and similar to his photo collage paintings. 

I'm bearing up well with the 30 paintings in 30 days challenge. There is some amazing work being posted every day at Leslie Saeta's blog, so head on over and enjoy. Over 400 Artists are participating. 

GERHARD RICHTER
Gerhard Richter was born 9 February 1932 in Germany. He is a visual artist and a pioneer of New European Painting. Richter has produced abstract, photorealistic paintings, photographs, sculpture and glass pieces to name a few. He echoes Pablo Picasso and Jean Arp in challenging the idea that the artist must maintain a single cohesive style.

In October 2012, Richter's Abstraktes Bild set an auction record price for a painting by a living artist at £21m ($34m).[4] This was exceeded in May 2013 when his 1968 piece Domplatz, Mailand (Cathedral square, Milan) was sold for $37.1 million (£24.4 million) in New York.[5] - From Wikepedia


Mount Albert Edward by Sea Dean
I didn't study modern art in college so I'm not familiar with Gerhard Richter's work. However, in researching this blog. I came across Gibirge and was amazed at the similarity to my own "Mount Albert Edward", which was painted in 2011. Admittedly the former is much larger and less colourful, but the great thing is that my painting is under $150 not many millions.
