Sigmar Polke’s artwork is known for the use of unconventional ideas and he focuses on the dialogue between himself and the viewer. He challenges ideas of individuality in art work and often uses other peoples art within his own. What I’m interested in is his use of materials and his mixed media collaged work. He sometimes works on printed fabric or transparent materials instead of canvas, and the subject tends to be ideas from everyday life or people, fairy tales, history or myths.

I am thinking of may be using already printed patterns material in my work, to add to my own drawings, as well as line sketches and painting.
