Catalogue Note

“Polke literally and metaphorically dissects and dissolves images… all the while raising philosophical questions deeply concerned with not only the way images look and are made but also the possible and probable slippages, uncertainties, and misperceptions that can occur when we apprehend them.”
Charles Wylie
Exh. Cat., Dallas Museum of Art, Sigmar Polke, History of Everything, Paintings and Drawings 1998-2002, 2003, pp. 12-13
