PAINTINGS

Artist Statement

 

Colour evokes strong emotional responses for Pollard and this has been transferred into many of her pieces. She enjoys the inter connectedness of shape, design, texture and layering. Currently, Pollard enjoys the freedom of working quickly, to strip back layers to reveal symbols from the unconscious. Many of her ideas cultivated from an interest in pattern, texture and colour found in natural objects, rocks, and the landscape. 

 

Pollard believes that the arms are an extension of the heart and the artist connects to a place of stillness through the intuitive process of painting. Often her fresh earthy canvasses reveal mysterious layers evolving from a rich earthy palette, which seems reminiscent of the Australian landscape.
