Catalogue Note

While, from close up, the whole composition encircles the centre; seen from a distance, it separates from it; as if the construction was designed to give it special emphasis. Once this double effect is appreciated, you can see that it provides the key to the work. For, if it affords a monumental aspect to each Poliakoff picture independently from format, it explains the redistribution (...) which reduces composition in favour of form. Dora Vallier
