1. Inspired by: Gerhard Richter, Atlas


    Gerhard Richter is one of the most influential artist who has re-defined contemporary painting and is a master of abstraction. Gerhard chose to paint from pictures so he didn’t have to waist his time choosing a subject. Atlas, is a project that maps the ideas, life and processes of Gerhard. I love the Atlas project because it showcases Gerhard’s newspaper clippings, photos and sketches that have inspired him over the years.

      Ooh, I’ll have to look through these sometime. Did you see the documentary “Gerhard Richter Painting”? So good. (if you like watching someone quietly painting, which I do)

      Yes, you’ve gotta watch the documentary (it is on Netflix) – it’s incredibly peaceful and inspiring. It was fascinating to see his process and being reminded throughout the film that “painting is another form of thinking” (his motto) made me remember exactly why I love art so much. It really is a universal language. I couldn’t wait to pick up my brushes afterward.

      Been thinking about you and wondering what your days are like now that you’re self-employed. I bet you’re loving it! :)
