PROVENANCE: Private collection North Rhine-Westphalia.

Only the dot serigraph, a staple technique in Sigmar Polke‘s work, remains the same in the 15 variants of the motif; By varying the image-carrying material and the two-dimensional processing of the individual objects‘ colors, Sigmar Polke questions the character of reproduced graphic art once more: The serial object is thus taken away from the serial and given an unique character.
Linde Rohr-Bongart, who published this edition in "art actuell edition", has been editor of the Kunstkompass for many years, the well-known ranking of the 100 most important contemporary artists; the limited editions of "art actuel" made the publication of the art compass possible. Sigmar Polke led this ranking in 2001 and 2002.
