The Paris-based artists work i pits the classical with the delinquent. The show features 20 new paintings and 16 drawings. Pol describes the work as:

"Boxes are vanities. Hollow like skulls, Vanities of human enterprises, technological progress or power. Computers make fake easy. They are the laziest way to make metaphysical statements. Beyond pessimism. Is it really the builder or the destroyer that cares for the future?"
