Sigmar Polke (1941-2010) rarely gave interviews, and on the few occasions when he did so, his responses frustrated the interviewer’s quest for information. Similarly, he wrote very few artist statements. The relative lack of guidance from the artist has meant that viewers and those who write about Polke’s work must take risks, makes guesses, puzzle things out for themselves. Here in ‘Hallucie’ alluding with faces that may be found within the dots of a printer’s screen is obvious.

The edition “Hallucie” is part of the MoMA Print Collection, New York, USA.
