Alex Pollard's work emerges from a studio practice. His solo exhibition at Talbot Rice Gallery takes influences from the new romantic, the fable of Pierrot the Clown - a story of temptation and guilt - and notions of the gothic.
Black Marks shows the development of Pollard's work since his inclusion in the 2005 Venice Biennale. New bronzes made in collaboration with the Scottish Sculpture Workshop, trompe l'oeil reliefs, and a selection of new oil paintings will form the exhibition. Born in Brighton in 1977, he currently lives and works in Glasgow.
The exhibition is supported by the Esmee Fairburn Foundation, and the Scottish Arts Council.
