|Alla Moda....thanks for organising this wonderful event...and thanks|
for donating to the Second Chance Program.
In the documentary, Raf works with his team.....creating, designing and sculpting fabrics, pinning, examining, pondering possibilities, stressing, wanting the impossible etc etc......to create his magnificent haute couture collection.
We also see him visit the Gerhard Richter exhibition at The Pompidou Centre, which I saw in Paris in 2012 too.
Glorious, painted splotched, splattered and squeegeed canvasses....from Raf's reaction I think I can safely say that he loved the Richter paintings as much as I did!
For this collection, Raf collaborated with long term friend and artist, Sterling Ruby, to translate Ruby's fabulous abstract 'splattered and splotched' canvasses to fabric. www.wmagazine.com/people/2014/05/sterling-ruby.../photos/.
Extremely complex....digitally produced....the fabric is finally created and delivered to Raf and it's WOW factor material.
Sculpting a coat from the 'Ruby' inspired fabric immediately and directly onto the model, Raf chuckles and says,"Romeo Gigli on acid!"
So.... here's a little of that 2012 Gerhard Richter exhibition at The Pompidou Centre, Paris.
It's WOW factor material too....and it's coming to Brisbane!

|All paintings above and below by Gerhard Richter....coming to GOMA, Brisbane in 2018.|
Richter, a German artist, has been hailed as one of the most important painters of the 20th & 21st-centuries.
|No...not a photograph...a Gerhard Richter painting!|
Gerhard Richter.....I'll be waiting for those luminous scratched, peeled, splattered, splotched and squeegeed canvasses in 2018. Can't wait!
