Sigmar Polke
[Painter and photographer, b. 1941, Oels, Silesia, Germany (Now Poland), d. 2010, Cologne, Germany.]

 It’s the procedures in and for themselves that interest me. The picture isn’t really necessary. 
 I don’t see a big difference between painting and photography. Moreover, such distinctions mean nothing to me. 
 A negative is never finished. 
 What interests me is the unforeseeable.
