Catalogue Note

“I don’t have a specific picture in my mind’s eye. I want to end up with a picture that I haven’t planned. This method of arbitrary choice, chance, inspiration and destruction may produce a specific type of picture, but it never produces a predetermined one… I just want to get something more interesting out of it than those things I can think out for myself.”  Gerhard Richter
