looking at the creative process, with limitations 30 Sept. 2012
By irwin gershow - Published on
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
Gerhard Richter Painting
this dvd is an attempt to explore the inner workings of the creative process of a great contemporary artist. what is highlighted in the inexpressible process of the artist's thinking and feeling as he works on his paintings until the "moment" of achievement is met. richter admits to not knowing from the get go what he is intending to achieve. his large size squeegees create transformations of the initial hand made painting, and the mechanical process offers him the opportunity for the painting to have a life of it's own. in watching this, the viewer is fascinated, puzzled, bored, and transfixed looking at an artist, but not quite seeing into his inner psyche. richter is often both self deprecating and humorous about the "unknowable" in mulling over the creative process. the film tends to be rather slow moving and at times lumbering, but it is none-the-less, a wonderful inside view of a great artist at work.

He is one of the best abstract painters. 23 Feb. 2013
By C. Eckdall - Published on
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
Great DVD. Painting with a giant squeegie has been obvious to most artists but surprising to many who have never silk screened.
I love his enormous range and this is just aspect of his long long career.

Moving Paint 26 Nov. 2012

Format: DVD Verified Purchase
An intimate visit with the artist in his studio. It was a joy to watch him engaged in his creative process, and to see his paintings unfold. He's very adept with both brush and squeegee. It was delicious to watch.

Abstract painters must see! 31 Jan. 2014
By Cayt - Published on

I am an abstract painter and a lover of German art and film - so this documentary was a PERFECT combination. I was constantly hitting rewind and pausing the movie and writing down the way he describes painting...
There are scenes where Gerhard is just painting and staring at the canvas and I'm not sure how interesting those segments will be for 'non artist types.' For me, I felt every though he was vocalizing. I 'know' those moments. It was exciting to have it captured so subtly.
I believe any abstract painter will surely enjoy this film. ! Perfect amount of studio time, conversations, history, gallery planning, art-busy-ness, personal technique, etc.I would watch again in a heartbeat!

Be Forewarned, Uncle Rudy's In The Closet. 9 Mar. 2013
By John Eden - Published on
Format: Blu-ray Verified Purchase
Very interesting video documentary of the artist at work in his studio, and also sheds light on why the artist has lead an aesthetic double life, where everything is questioned and deemed unresolvable. He was born into Nazi Germany, grew up and was trained as a Social Realist in East Germany and fled to west for the artistic freedom it offered. It also explores Thomas Mann's 'never being able to return home' to his family in East Germany and the pain that created. His life's narrative doesn't make him a great artist, the work alone does that.
