    J’aime beaucoup et je viens de lire un texte par rapport à son œuvre:
    « Les toiles abstraites mettent en évidence une méthode : ne pas avoir de sujet, ne pas calculer, mais développer, faire naître. » (in Notes, 1985).
    Merci de nous faire partager dear Fabio

      Dear Soizic, Thanks so much for sharing the note! Yes, Richter is very creative et il fait naitre his paintings indeed. If you have access o Netflix, watch this documentary about his creative process. “Gerhard Richter Painting” (2011) Artist Gerhard Richter at work, as seen in
      Corinna Belz’s recent documentary “Gerhard Richter Painting” is a fascinating look at the creative process by following one the greats in contemporary painting, Gerhard Richter, in his studio, as he builds paintings. It’s a meditative film, slow by design, but compelling: we watch as Richter adds layer upon layer of paint to the canvas, lets the paintings sit, and then edits and changes them, even when you think the piece could be done. Richter is not particularly articulate about his work, but it doesn’t matter: it’s about watching the minutiae, the details of his process, which provide insight into how art of any kind gets made. Thanks so much for your important comment and have a great Sunday, dear Soizic! 🙂
