"... But allowing the work to take its effect, an elementary poetic force is relased from the shapes; novel and different for each work of art. Poliakoff's work has the gravity and greatness seen in sacred art of past ages. One can clearly detect its affinity with ikons. But these works are created within the spirit of our times and must be concidered when one wants to demonstrate that interior force which, in our day, is essential to authentic plastic creation." Franz Meyer
