Frank Stella

I like real art. It’s difficult to define REAL but it is the best word for describing what I like to get out of art and what the best art has. It has the ability to convince you that it’s present – that it’s there. You could say it’s authentic… but real is actually a better word, broad as it may be. – Frank Stella

Julie Mehretu

The large canvases by Ethiopian-born American artist, Julie Mehretu, for example, reveal a mesmerizing play of grey and black with a similar economy of means, smeared into a frenzied cursive of mark-making that refuses to congeal into sense or sign. – Laura Hoptman

Domfenster at Köln Dom

Domfenster at Köln Dom

Domfestner is a 20 meter high stained glass window at the Köln Dom Cathedral based on Gerhard Richter’s 1970 abstract work titled “4096 Farben” or 4096 Colors for those like me that don’t know German… this artwork features, squares of colors rendered from the color palette of a printing ink manufacturer and you can see it in a previous post. Deconstruction of iconography are the keywords here but it works refreshingly well at the church, it is one of those few places where you can see contemporary art in a Gothic church. You can see more of this window on flickr
