Kevin Pollock (b.1978 in Ayr, Scotland) lives and works in Glasgow.
Kevin Pollock’s sculpture, installation and site-specific works are deeply aware of their own process. Within this they offer us a peculiar, inverted and humorous reflection on the beautifully mundane. Their interaction, both with the space and with the viewer is, all at once, a projection of imaginative potential and challenge to play.
His practice is based on a deep understanding of materials and acute awareness of aesthetic balance. He simultaneously works to an exacting method, valuing a high standard of craftsmanship. By means reminiscent of the Surrealists ‘Automatic Writing’ his structures are conceived, as they are composed. Pollock graduated from Glasgow School of Art, Scotland in 2003.
