PATTERNS by Gerhard Richter

ドイツ人画家、ゲルハルト・リヒター(Gerhard Richter)の作品集。自らの作品「Abstract Painting [CR: 724-4]」を出発点として、作者はまず2つ、次に4つ、その次は8つ、16、32、64…というように、12の段階を踏んでイメージを細長い帯状に分割した。最終的に12番目の段階では、8190のストライプから構成されたオリジナルと同じ高さのイメージが出来上がった。分割のそれぞれの段階で、帯の幅はどんどん狭くなっていく。12番目の段階のストリップの幅はわずか0.08 mmである。作者はこの帯を反転・反復し、見ていると頭がくらくらしてくるような複雑な238のパターンを作成した。本書では、これらのパターンをほぼ見開きいっぱいに収録。

詳細

The artist's book documents Gerhard Richter’s experiment of taking an image of his original Abstract Painting [CR: 724-4] and dividing it vertically into strips: first 2, then 4, 8, 16, 32, 64, 128, 256, 512, 1024, 2048, up to 4096 strips. This process (twelve stages of division) results in 8190 strips, each of which is the height of the original image. With each stage of division the strips become progressively thinner (a strip of the 12th division is 0.08 mm). Endless more divisions are possible, but they would soon only become visible by enlargement. Each strip is then mirrored and repeated, which results in patterns. The number of repetitions increases with each stage of division in order to make patterns of consistent size. The result of 238 listed patterns is published on 238 double page images.
