Opening Reception: Thursday December 01, 2005 from 5:00-7:30pm Don Pollack in attendance
Newzones is pleased to announce an exhibition of new paintings by Don Pollack.
Pollack's paintings are extremely detailed, highly realistic landscapes, which resemble photographs or 19th Century landscape paintings with their high-gloss finish. Pollack's paintings however, add an element of uncertainty to the classical representations of nature we are used to. Pollack represents nature as a force that cannot be contained or defined by human constructs. In his work, nature always manages to insinuate an element of the untamable and the unexpected into human attempts to impose meaning and order on it.
Born in 1958, Chicago, Illinois, Don Pollack received his Bachelors of Fine Arts from the University of Illinois and his Masters of Fine Arts from the Ohio State University. His work has been featured in numerous solo and group exhibitions throughout North America. Since 1986, Don Pollack has been teaching art at the Illinois Institute of Art in Chicago, Illinois.
