Fergus McCaffrey, St. Barth is proud to present Sigmar Polke, an exhibition of drawings, paintings, and manipulated photocopies that span Polke’s extensive career. This is the gallery’s fourth exhibition of the late artist’s work, following Sigmar Polke / Andy Warhol: Drawings 1962–65 (2006), Sigmar Polke (2011), and Sigmar Polke: Photocopierarbeiten (2014).
Polke’s work resists easy categorization as throughout his career he employed a wide range of materials, techniques, and subject matter. Amongst the most influential and revered artists of the second half of the 20th Century, Polke reinvented painting, photography, and drawing and influenced four generations of artists. He worked between figuration and abstraction, fused and corrupted popular culture and high art, and pioneered an entirely new visual domain.
