After major Tate Modern and MoMA retrospectives, you can catch Polke's Pour Paintings in Mayfair this winter, at the Michael Werner gallery.
Polke is best known as a painter - but he pushed the medium to its limit, experimenting with method, content and materials. The large-scale works you'll see at Michael Werner are characterised by evocative reels of poured paint floating on a flat black background, sprinkled with minerals and splashed with chemicals. You can occasionally make out shapes and representational imagery. But, as with most things Polke, you're never quite sure were you stand. And all the better for it.
