'Letting a thing come rather than creating it - no assertions, constructions, formulations, inventions, ideologies - in order to gain access to all that is genuine, richer, more alive: to what is beyond my understanding.'

'Using chance is like painting Nature - but which chance event, out of all the countless possibilities?'

(Gerhard Richter, Statement, 1985, from 'Chance', edt. M. Iversen, Documents of Contemporary Art, Cambridge: MIT Press, 2010, p. 158)
