"Art is the highest form of hope." Gerhard Richter.
I had the pleasure to 'experience' this imposing painting/photograph in Chicago. We don't know much about the story of this woman, but I love her elegance & confidence of movement.
I appreciate Richter's combination of photo-realism and abstract painting...
II am thinking of pieces as bold as nature, and as confident as Richter's woman walking down the stairs...Maison Martin Margiela Spring 2012 collection!
