Sigmar Polke

Polkes capacity and drive to cross mediums and experiment with materials are very inspirational.

‘Polke’s notoriously multidisciplinary approach produced an expansive oeuvre, marked by promiscuity in material and medium as well as an absence of identifiable style, yet all the while bearing the hallmark of his inimitable spirit as playful provocateur.’ From Nahmad Contemporary.

To create this work, Polke has very simply adapted his environment.
