Serpentine Galleries and HENI Productions are delighted to present this series of prints by Gerhard Richter. HENI Productions has so far made 11 editions with Richter, identified as P1 to P11, under Richter’s direction and approval. The most recent four editions (P8 to P11) have been specially created for the Serpentine Galleries.

The group of works, installed at the Serpentine Gallery and each available for 1,500 GBP including VAT (1,250 GBP excluding VAT), is based on Richter’s seminal ”Flow” paintings, which were created by capturing poured enamel paints on a glass surface. High-resolution photographs of the originals have been transformed into chromatographic prints, precisely reproducing the combination of chance gesture and careful composition within the originals.

These editions are referred to by the artist as “facsimile objects”; although they proceed from the ”Flow” paintings, this series is distinct from the originals in a number of ways. In some cases, the artist has decided to present them differently; in others, they represent the only version of paintings that no longer exist. 

Further to these works, Serpentine Galleries are also delighted to announce recently published and forthcoming Editions by: Trisha Donnelly; Olafur Eliasson; Cerith Wyn Evans; Hans-Peter Feldmann; Julio Le Parc and Reiner Ruthenbeck.
