Exhibition: Snail Trail
“Following his Francophile foray, tall-standing Easton stalwart Ben J. Pollock aka Tapper returns to his home turf to present this showcase of new work, including a selection of recent paintings created in Marseille.
“Snail Trail exposes Pollock’s delicate underbelly to the razor-sharp edge that delineates high and low culture. In his typical pop-surrealist style, Pollock pushes a carapace of collage and paint that rides on a smooth and shiny body of underlying passion and sensual scenography” – Fraisia Dunn
“Pollock’s art usually consists of him ‘trying to be clever’; it is figurative, playing with reality using humour and depth. He is shy but his work is often the opposite: big; bright; pop; weird – often involving the subversion of popular themes. Most work is acrylic painting on board but he regularly moves into sculpture and plays with the space between the two.”
