"Gerhard Richter Quotes"


+ Modern art has always only shown itself to me in trends and blowhards, so I couldn't be a modern artist. There were always powerful movements or groups that today we don't even know anymore.

+ I can't always reach the image in my mind.. almost never, in fact.. so that the abstract image I create is not quite there, but it gets to the point where I can leave it.

+ How could one be in this world without feeling dismayed by it? Even if one paints flowers and gingerbread.

+ I have to have a mental picture, an image, to start. I never reach this image, but it's good to begin with it.

+ What I'm attempting in each picture is nothing other than this.. to bring together in a living and viable way, the most different and the most contradictory elements in the greatest possible freedom.

+ The tough part is always at the end. The beginning is always easy.

+ I never worked at painting as if it were a job; it was always out of interest or for fun, a desire to try something.

+ It has to do with the surface of both, which at the end becomes erased, or more erased. Before that, they were richer, full of things. Uglier, but more precise maybe.

+ I would do different jobs. I didn't want to have to make paintings I would be paid for, nor did I want to have to be nice to a dealer.

+ Form is all we have to help us cope with fundamentally chaotic facts and assaults. Formulating something is a great start. I trust form, trust my feeling or capacity to find the right form for something. Even if that is only by being well organized. That too is form.
