Born in Dublin in 1975, Ian Pollock is primarily a self-taught artist working exclusively in bronze. His sculptures are cast using the 'cire perdue' (lost wax) method in ceramic shell moulds. Inspiration for his sculptures comes from aspects of daily life. Pollock sees his work ‘like a three dimensional diary’ and believes that 'good art should reflect the mood of the person that made it'.
Pollock's work has been included in in many prestigious group exhibitions in Ireland, including the Oireachtas, the Royal Hibernian Academy and the Royal Ulster Academy. At the RUA he was awarded the Mullan Prize for sculpture in 2003. His bronzes are included in numerous private and public collections in Ireland, the UK, Europe and the USA. These include the Office of Public Works, University College Dublin, the Beacon Clinic, the Vocational Educational Committee (VEC) and an eleven foot Flight of Birds for Largy College in Clones, Co. Monaghan.
