When I entered the room containing the works by Sigmar Polke I was instantly enthralled. The Polish-German artist just died last month but we can only hope his work will be around for a long time after. It changed my mood to reverent immediately. I was bathed in golden light and felt so much better about life. These pieces were the most moving to me that day. The canvas is metal (tellurium and nickel, respectively), a very difficult surface to paint on but so worth it. We are definitely going to get a membership to the MOMA in San Francisco. We are only a couple of hours away. I can't wait to go back as there was so much art I didn't have time to appreciate. The place is enormous. I still have more posts from that day that I am very excited to unveil. I just found out that the Fisher Collection will be a permanent addition to the MOMA in SF! Only 1/7th of this collection has been shown thus far, so even more impetus to come back as much as possible.
