Gerhard Richter

Gerhard Richter created a series of paintings that resembled a photograph. However, he did not have the intention to imitate a photograph, but he believed the act he was doing was "producing photographs".

I liked his work the moment I knew they weren't photographs, I found that impressive how he can recreate the qualities of photographs by using a paintbrush. Also, the idea behind his work is very unique. Normally, we are used to working on a painting from photographs, as a reference. However, this is the other way round, using paint to recreate a photograph. The idea alone inspires me to investigate with paint to create different effects.
