Book review: Gerhard Richter November

Sometimes it is the simple incidents that can lead to some intriguing works of art. In the case of November, Gerhard Richter became fascinated with the dripping patterns his black Edding marker-pen ink made on paper whilst decanting it in 2008. Using benzene, acetone and black tushe, the German artist set about experimenting with the process – thinning the materials and manipulating the patterns and colours.

The result is the November series – 54 works of art, comprising 27 individual sheets with mirror images on both sides. Heni Publishing has gathered the entire series in November – showcasing the enchanting shapes and quite colours of Richer’s work.
