Gehard Richter at the Serpentine Gallery

Last weekend I managed to catch the current Gerhard Richter exhibition at The Serpentine Gallery. It was my first visit to the gallery. '4900 Colours: Version II' is 49 paintings that each contain 100 small squares of colour. The combination of colours on each painting is different so each piece is unique.

I enjoyed the paintings, with their overwhelming geometricism (is that a word?) although I could not help thinking that this was an example of the 'idea' triumphing over art.

Upon leaving I enjoyed a walk through a very autumnal Kensington Gardens.
