Jess Pollock (b.1993, Gillingham, Kent) is a contmeproary Biritsh artist exploring arcadian visions, pastoral ideals yet with a dystopian undertone. These works consist of old fruit picking ladders, flagons and shotguns; all things the artist associates with ‘the olden days’ of rural Britain and associated traditions to examine his self-defined patriotism and continued questions what identity means today. Using steel, aluminium and silicone to create sculptures which refer to the shifting and conflicting interplay of himankind's relationship to landscape and tradition. Pollock's work juxtaposes bucolic convention with a distorted and contested reality.
