Don Pollack Art

American

Don Pollack is a painter and adjunct associate professor of visual communication at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. His work investigates, among other things, the relationship between personal mythologies and representation in painting and how it may simultaneously give reference to a narrative. Working in cross disciplines has influenced his perspectives as projects begin with an epic adventure. 

Conceptually proceeding from the premise that all vision is historic and constructed, Pollack’s research starts with the planning of a long distance trek — such as a 3,000-mile journey via bicycle following Lewis and Clark. His work has utilized maps, documents, photography, painting and installation. This work was rooted in a previous investigation into the role of museums in the process of forming collective memory. Pollack studied design at the University of Illinois and painting at the Ohio State University, where he received his MFA. The state of Illinois has recognized his history-based work with a special bicentennial edition of the ‘Order of Abraham Lincoln’ award. He has exhibited nationally and internationally and has shown in many solo shows in Chicago, New York, Atlanta and Canada.
