Three Works by Alexander James Pollard

    Research output: Non-textual outputExhibition


    Three paintings were displayed with a fictional email conversation between the artist and the manager of a Chinese "painting factory" in Xiamen where the World of Warcraft imagery (swords) were painted. This fictional correspondence playfully examines the notion of "collaboration" between artisan and artist. The works are born out of technological networks and digital "inter-connectivity" yet the repeated mantra of the sword refers as much to mythical swords of old folklore, such as Excalibur. As we move further and further into the digital we become more and more captivated by the mythic potential of art.
