Gerhard Richter- ‘Uncle Rudi’Posted: March 12, 2015
An artist who I explored during my dissertation research was Gerhard Richter. There was one painting in particular that should out and this can be seen below.
‘Uncle Rudi‘ shows Richter’s uncle in a SS uniform posing for a family photograph before he heads off to war and subsequently dies. This piece portrays evil through the uniform however this element is also normalised with the normal pose of this individual.
