ALCHEMIE AND ARABESKE
Sigmar Polke (1941 – 2010) counts among Germany’s great pictorial innovators and most important painters. His works live off organised coincidence and harbour mysterious surprises. They are marked by a playful way with words and images that transcends any attempts at categorical stringency.
The exhibition in Museum Frieder Burda concentrates on two essential characteristics of Polke’s works. Under the aspect of alchemy, it focusses on the random or even chaotic appear-ances of his paintings, which are created by the use of unusual materials, which in turn leads to idiosyncratic colour patterns. Alchemy is juxtaposed with the aspect of arabesque – ornamental line patterns, which Polke took, for example, from the wood-cuts of Dürer and Altdorfer.
