Gerhard Richter Painting



—01. At work.


For some reason I missed seeing the documentary Gerhard Richter Painting, released in 2012. I finally took the time to watch it on Netflix, and it is an incredible and meditative portrait of one of the most gifted and recognized living artists; who's equally skilled in the styles of photo-real and abstract painting. I have loved his work ever since I realized it was his artwork on the cover of Daydream Nation, and it is inspiring to be a fly on the wall to his method in this film.

Interesting how Day Dream Nation seems to be the way a lot of people discovered Richter's work. If you don't already have it, the book Panorama is an excellent monologue looking in depth at his vast oeuvre.
