Gerhard Richter - Portraits

Small but stunning collection of his portraits. I found it amazingly successful the way he had given the impression of a memory - from a photograph but all the details hazy and then suddenly one bit right in focus - it made me understand further how hard it is to try and do this in 3d. Maybe I need to work further at this 2d level first and make a strong impression or idea before trying to make it 3d...

'You realise that you can't represent reality at all - that what you make represents nothing but itself, and therefore is itself reality.' Richter
