Patience Pollock is an artist known for her abstract conceptual landscapes which are created from photographs, found materials and textiles. Born and raised on the North Fork of Long Island, New York Pollock has consistently been asking questions about the limits of materials in her studio practice. She received a BFA in Photography from SUNY Purchase. Trained as a photographer, she employs image making techniques to her painting and sculpture practice. She creates experimental leather and paper sculptural paintings, self published limited edition zines, upcycled leather earrings and poetry.
K.O.O.L. Is the acronym that Pollock applies to her studio practice. It stands for Kept Out Of Landfill. Each art work made in the studio observes the dire need for humans to be responsible for their actions regarding the fragile state of our environment.
Patience is based in Santa Fe, New Mexico where she continues to explore the intersection of painting, sculpture and photography. She is currently an artist at Vital Spaces (www.vitalspaces.com). To schedule a virtual tour of works for sale, please use contact form.
