“Gerhard Richter’s work investigates and explores malaise—that void, that gap, that speck of death, that violence we carry inside us—reality as a screen compared to the unbearable real. Painting inscribes the tragic dimension—tragedy concerning that area where death encroaches on life.” Birgit Pelzer Parkett No. 35, 1993
