St John, 1988 is from a series called the ‘London Paintings’ – each piece is named after one of the chapels of Westminster Abbey. The titles are not meant to be descriptive, but refer to the associations connected with the artist’s visits to London. Since 1980 Richter has made his abstract paintings by manipulating different spatulas, loaded with paint, across areas of the canvas. As it is impossible to control the precise distribution of the paint, a degree of chance determines the final appearance.
