Number Fourteen, by Brad Hayes
9" x 12", oil on cotton paper, 2019
From the series TWENTY-FIVE. In 1962 painter #GerhardRichter starts creating monochromatic and very representational paintings with a blurry finish. Blurring an image corrupts it, corrodes it, degrades it, shrouds its emotion, buries its light. Many of the blurred snapshot-scenes Richter produced in the 60s were of relatives he would never see again, childhood locations he’d never step foot again. Portraits of victims and villains in the news.
With this series we've taken that physical and conceptual aspect of Richter’s work to create 25 monochromatic portraits of the twenty-five legislators in Alabama that this past week stepped up the war against reproductive rights a thespian notch with their votes.
