EXCLUSIVE EXHIBITION FOR EICH GALLERY

SCROLL DOWN FOR IMAGES

 

A new collection of work by internationally renowned illustrator Ian Pollock is currently on show exclusively in Hull. 

 

The exhibition entitled ‘Pollock’s New Testament’ is a collection of 55 images inspired by the New Testament which can only be seen at the University of Lincoln’s EICH Gallery.

 

A special evening will be held at the gallery in George Street between 6pm and 8pm on Friday 16th January 2004 where people will be able to meet the illustrator and see his work.  The evening is free and all are welcome to attend.

 

Ian Pollock trained at Manchester Polytechnic and the Royal College of Art and has been freelancing for the last quarter of a century.

 

The illustrator works mostly for magazines and newspapers and was commissioned to design four postage stamps - ‘Tales of Terror’ - for the Royal Mail which were issued in May 1997.

 

“This exhibition contains Ian Pollock’s private artistic vision and not commissioned work,” said Kathie Jenkins, curator of the EICH gallery.

 

“It has never been seen publicly before and it will only be shown here at the EICH Gallery.”

 

The EICH (European Illustration Collection Hull) Gallery comprises a loan collection of over 1,000 original illustrative works belonging to London publisher Edward Booth-Clibborn.

 

The exhibition is open daily Monday to Saturday from 10am until 4pm and will run until 20th February 2004.
