Catalogue Note

"Polke for a long time has been the most interesting, least predictable of the painters around...[his work] has a deep kind of shrewdness." (Robert Storr, "The Alchemist's Moment: The Reclusive Mr. Polke," The New York Times,  Weekend Arts and Lesiure, Sunday, May 27, 2007, p.1)

"Polke's paintings are much more than marooned and shipwrecked images, art historical salvage and technical pyrotechnics. His art may have begun as a European response to American pop art, but it went on to be much more. He both dismantled painting and reconfigured our idea of what it could be. He respected history and played devil with it."  (Adriane Searle, The Guardian, June 16, 2010)
