Gerhard Richter at Tate Modern… an observation…

At the Gerhard Richter show I noted this Tate Modern writing next to one of the works;

‘…paint sometimes obscures the subject and elsewhere draws us to notice the peculiarity of a mundane image.’

I agree with the statement… but I do find it interesting they felt there was a need to write it… and even stranger that when I wanted to photograph the text I was told not to, although there was no work of art within the frame… so power to the pen and the notebook, no way could the guard deny me that.
