Catalogue Note

"I neither know in advance what it is meant to look like nor, during the painting process, what I am aiming at and what to do about getting there. Painting is consequently an almost blind, desperate effort, like that of a person abandoned, helpless, in totally incomprehensible surroundings." Gerhard Richter in Jürgen Harten & Dietmar Elger, Gerhard Richter: Paintings 1962-1985, Düsseldorf 1986, p. 89
