“It is comforting simply because it is
beautiful. These days’ beauty is not in fashion. We don’t need it. Beauty is an
ideal of mine, as much as it ever was. I can’t find anything bad about it. But
beauty is being discredited.” Gerhard Richter
Whereas Richter can’t find anything bad about beauty, I sometimes experience
mere beauty as empty. Because that is what it has to be. Beautiful.
However, things that one may normally not pay attention to I’d like to give a spotlight. Things we might see as garbage, a residue or as trivial. To me those can be beautiful without being empty and are asking you to look at something you probably never have taken the time to really look at before.
