| Blurring as a stylistic principle in photography and painting

Since Gerhard Richter’s introduction of blurring into his technique, it has become a stylistic principle in representational figurative and abstract painting as well as in the photographic work of many younger artists. It engenders effects such as softening and veiling, which create romantic, nostalgic visual experiences and lend the images an aura of the mysterious. The blur of motion that represents the progressive dynamics of modern life feeds upon completely different visual experiences. A third aspect is that of distortion, which makes an image so difficult to recognize that it cannot be identified at all. Enlarged, pixelated, or blurred images are fascinating, irritating, unsettling—and ultimately force the viewer to deal with the question of the reality of what he or she perceives as well as the role art plays in the perceptual process. Artists featured: Pablo Alonso, David Armstrong, Anna und Bernhard Blume, Wolfgang Ellenrieder, Michael Engler, Isca Greenfield-Sanders, Maxine Henryson, Bill Jacobson, Adam Jankowski, Tamara K.
