That Sigmar Polke exhibit which was running when we had our wedding at MoMA was really amazing. The work that hit me the most in my geeky little heart was Supermarkets, and there's an obvious reason.
Polke was a Pop Artist, and a post-modernist, and like Lichtenstein, whose work has more than a few similarities, he melted between the two genre. Here it is a chaotic, hasty, some might say messy, presentation of a series of Supermans in a supermarket. The title may be a bit on the nose, but it's really a Pop Art image that is starting to show the cracks in the movement that would lead to Post-Modernism in the 1980s. Here's a series of Superman images, with a big, bright, impressive naming at the top, and a series of triangles of color. It is far more painterly and abstract that you would expect, but you can see that Polke is folding himself between the lines here, and is doing so incredibly well.
