Artist in Focus – Gerhard Richter
Gerhard Richter's body of work is famously marked by a refusal to adhere to a specific medium or approach: he has made painting, sculpture, photography and installation. There are certain themes that emerge across his career, however: ideas of trauma and memory, the problems of expression and the elusiveness of the photographic image.
