While Polke’s work does not aim at the subversion of meaning it does challenge and disrupt our established methods of access. He is wilfully anti-rational and anti-logical and clearly not interested in the quantifiable. His work forces us to relinquish the security of deductive reasoning, and by employing the strategy of saying little he offers no alternative rationale which would allow us to construct another rigid theorem.
