“To talk about paintings is not only difficult but perhaps pointless too. You can only express in words what words are capable of expressing-- what language can communicate. Painting has nothing to do with that.”
Gerhard Richter

“I believe that art has a kind of rightness, as in music, when we hear whether or not a note is false”
Gerhard Richter

“Art is the highest form of hope.”
Gerhard Richter
