Gerhard Richter Painting is a strikingly visual document of Richters creative process. Filmmaker Corinna Belz and her crew observe the seventy-nine-year-old German artist in his studio at work on a new series of large-scale abstract paintings. Richters distinctive technique, one that involves applying paint followed by a major reworking of the material with massive squeegees, reveals the creation/destruction process at play in his work. Intimate conversations with his critics, his collaborators, and his American gallerist Marian Goodman and rare archive material provide additional insights. Gerhard Richter Painting offers an insiders view into one of the worlds greatest living painters, who has been infamously media-shy. Magnificent and evocative
as close as cinema gets to tracking the impulses and paradoxes of a gifted imagination (Aaron Hillis, Village Voice).
