all things of quality have a timelessness

December 14, 2011

all things of quality have a timelessness – Tacita Dean and Gerhard Richter at Tate Modern for just a few more days . .

Iceberg in the Mist . . .

and abstract paintings CR 420 + 421  – like dreams – movement – three-dimensional – foreground background – oh, just like the mind floating and dropping into sleep . . .

. . well, no photographs in this exhibition so just a surreptitious one of the glass screens and all they reflect . .

. . . and this is the panorama reflected – a timelessness – could be medieval, the peasants issuing from the bowels of the great cathedral but the bridge lifts them into suspension. Lovely city that regenerates seamlessly. Wonderful paintings that soar above the mundane.

‘Art is the highest form of hope’. Gerhard Richter Text for catalogue of documenta 7, Kassel, 1982
