The current edition P1 is the first in the series. It is based on Gerhard Richter’s Abstraktes Bild (CR: 724-4) from 1990. This painting has played an extremely important role in Richter’s recent experiments with chance and repetition. This painting was the foundational starting point for various editions including the artist’s book Patterns (2011) and the tapestries Musa, Yusuf, Iblan and Abdu (2009); it is also the source of the ‘Strips’ that the artist has created in the last few years. Although these works are highly diverse they were all developed through a similar process of dividing, mirroring and repeating the image of the abstract painting upon which P1 is based.
