Ian Pollock sculpture in Draíocht

On the Way to Once, beautiful new bronze from Ian Pollock.

Ian Pollock bronze

Dublin born sculptor Ian Pollock,Inspiration for his sculptures comes from aspects of daily life. Pollock sees his work ‘like a three dimensional diary’ of his life. “I never limit myself to one subject or style of work and can never say where the work will go next which makes it exciting for myself and I hope for the viewer. I like the fact that bronze is so permanent, a bronze sculpture is going to be around forever.”

Visualise painting in your own home

A new feature of the website is the presentation of the painting to scale in a real-life situation.

While we cannot replicate the inside of your house we can show you  the true scale of the art with the capability to change the colour of the walls. By pressing the colour nearest to the intended position in your house you get a better idea of how the painting might look.

This will be a default on all new paintings and will be rolled out to all paintings over time. Try it out for yourself. (the painting above is Shelter by Robert Ryan)
