3 on the Richter scale

Johannes Beilharz, 3 on the Richter scale, 20133 on the Richter scale / 3 auf der Richter-Skala (2013)

What started out as a planned improvisation on Gerhard Richter’s color pixel painting with the idea of choosing only very few colors instead of his 4096 turned into a triptych with more colors than intended due to the color gradations used. The Richter scale took on another meaning – that of a slight motion. Nothing like an earthquake.

Was als Plan einer Improvisation auf Gerhard Richters Farbpixelbild begann, mit dem Gedanken, nur sehr wenig Farben anstatt seiner 4096 zu verwenden, entwickelte sich zu einem Triptychon mit mehr Farben aufgrund der gewählten Farbverläufe. Die Richter-Skala bekam eine andere Bedeutung – die einer leichten Bewegung. Also keines Erdbebens.
