BIO

Painting with softness and delicate brushwork, Don Pollack’s paintings embrace a quaint antiquarianism including the heavy varnish used in academic paintings. Pollack is an accomplished realist painter with a serious approach to nature and the natural landscape.

Exploring the relationships between his own personal mythologies and those of the collective, Don Pollack’s paintings become living surfaces on canvas. Interested in the ways painting can contribute to the construction of identity, the images that result are a continual process of Pollack’s ideals.

The construction of identity is an important element in the artist’s paintings and from this perspective various issues are addressed during the course of creation: how painting can simultaneously reference impermanence and the transience of a single moment. Landscapes to Pollack are like shifting visions of photography, or stills from a movie.

Don Pollack received his BFA from the University of Illinois and his MFA from Ohio State University.

Masters of Fine Arts from Ohio State University.
