My exploration of what it is my art consists I have been continuously attracted to representation through metaphor and symbol, the relationship between painted images and the photograph and how each medium can lead the process of constructing a piece of art.
As I learn more about Gerard Richter I find myself exploring and learning more about myself. I am influenced by a life lived over sixty years. I don't want to be literal but instead want to be more ambiguous yet specific. I guess I'll learn more about what I mean as I continue to explore these ideas.
I wasn't able to see the documentary I mentioned in an earlier post so I have been searching youtube for others that give a glimpse of Richter and his art. I just finished watching the one below and want to share it with you. I realize Richter isn't for everyone but such is life.
