I am a big fan of Gerhard Richter abstract art. he inspired some of my early work. I love his use of colour and the techniques he uses to achieve his results. He very rarely uses a brush, he works with a squeegee and different tools to achieve he look.
“With a brush you have control. The paint goes on the brush and you make the mark. From experience you know exactly what will happen. With the squeegee you lose control.
Not all control, but some control. It depends on the angle, the pressure and the particular paint I am using.”
