Alex Pollard (British, born 1977)
The work of Glasgow-based artist Alex Pollard centres on the act of making art, shifting the focus from the gallery space to the artist’s studio. He references and explores art historical ideas and movements, distorts conventions and toys with notions of revelation and concealment. His choice of media, which ranges from traditional oil paint and bronze, to lipstick and eyeliner, emphasizes this playful reconsideration of traditions and assumptions. Born in Brighton, Pollard studied at Glasgow School of Art from 1996 to 1999, before spending a year at both Goldsmith’s College, London, and the School of the Art Institute, Chicago. He was one of four artists chosen to represent Scotland at the 2005 Venice Biennale.
