 Gerhard Richter: Patterns 
 For his latest project,  Gerhard Richter: Patterns , German artist  Gerhard Richter  took an image of his work “Abstract Painting” (CR: 7244) and divided it vertically into strips: first 2, then 4, 8, 16, 32, 64, 128, 256, 512, 1,024, and 2,048, leading up to 4,096 strips. 
 This process, involving 12 stages of division, results in 8,190 strips, each of which is reproduced here at the height of the original image! 
 The resulting 221 patterns are reproduced in the book on landscape spreads, making for an extraordinary, visual book experience.
