about this item

Sabine Moritz, famed German artist and wife of Gerhard Richter, has studied military aircraft with fascination for years, brilliantly translating her observations through her artistic perspective. Moritz’s enthrallment with the subject arose from an awareness of a distinct shift in the symbolic meaning of air travel since the events of 9/11. Highly evocative and originally derived from one simple black and white sketch, reproduced and painted over, this book comprises forty-one individual works focusing on the global presence of the Sea King, the anti-submarine warfare helicopter, which gives the series its name. Sea King is a companion to an exhibition of the series to be shown at the Serpentine Galleries in London. Featuring a foreword by Joe Hage, this catalog also offers a further exploration of the themes of memory, collective history, and time that are present in all of Moritz’s intriguing works.
