Gerhard Richter Painter. Germany.
Gerhard Richter Painting. A documentary by filmmaker Corinnza Belz. 2011.
German artist Gerhard Richter has spent over half a century experimenting with a tremendous range of techniques and ideas. Simultaneously produced abstract and photorealistic painted works, I personally enjoy his photo-real pieces most.
Infamously media-shy, Gerhard amazingly agreed to appear on camera for Corinnza Belz’ 2007 short called Gerhard Richter’s Window. Her follow-up, Gerhard Richter Painting (trailer seen above), documents Richter’s creative process, juxtaposed with intimate conversations and rare archive material.
As a mega fan of Gerhard Richter, I cannot wait to see this doc-to get an insight into the man’s brain and creative approach!
