Gerhard Richter Captured Painting on Video

Juxtapoz // Thursday, 20 Oct 2011

Gerhard Richter is an extremely diverse artist, known very well for his paintings that vary from photo-realistic speed blurs to large colorful abstractions. This video shot by filmmaker Corinna Belz while spending three years in Richter's Cologne studio working on her film Gerhard Richter Painting is amazing how it reveals the paintings being formed and Richter's unique practice of smearing, scraping, layering, and removing paint to create these large abstract paintings.
