Unit 8 Post 2 — Louis Onoratini

Much like in the movie “Never Look Away”, Richter painted pictures and drew blurry lines through them. This adds mystic and power to the pictures because it makes them less realistic and more imaginary. Simply translating a picture on canvas can be pretty but it holds no true power. However, like Kurt, Richter added power and meaning to his paintings by adding a surreal element to them. Both artists made them less grounded, more spiritual. This makes the audience connect to their art even if they do not know who is depicted. When human form is deformed, people tend to look at it with more intrigue and a wish to put back into form in their mind.
