Last Days To See Abstract Artist Fred Pollock Picture
20th January 2015
If you have time up until Saturday you can still see some pictures from the Highland council collection. Take in the Fred Pollock picture seen here but much better in full size in the St Fergus Gallery, Wick until Saturday 24th January 2014.
Fred Pollock was born in Glasgow in 1937, and studied at Glasgow School of Art. He now lives and works in London, and was amongst the artist who showed together at Stockwell Depot in the Seventies. His work was included in "British Painting 1952-77" at the Royal Academy in 1977, and in the Eighties he began a series of solo shows at the Vanessa Devereux Gallery, London. In 1980 he was in the Hayward Annual, and in 1982, a Serpentine Gallery Summer Show.
In 1984 Pollock was a guest artist at the Triangle Workshop in Mashomack, New York State. In the Nineties he had solo shows at the Rebecca Hossack Gallery, London, as well as solo shows in Amsterdam and Groningen. His work has always been held in high regard by critics and collectors, and Pollock is now considered pre-eminent amongst abstract painters of his generation for his sustained exploration of abstraction through highly charged colour values. His work is in numerous public and private collections, including the Arts Council and the Scottish Arts Council.
