MAY 21 – JULY 4, 2011

TransVagrant and Warschaw Gallery are pleased to present HEIDI POLLARD: RECENT WORKS.

Pollard’s paintings are mostly small in scale and high in octane, simultaneously self-referential and metaphorical – images born of the reconciliation of opposites. Gestural swaths of color host various occupations by shapes and drawn constructs, some diagrammatic, emblematic, or cartoon-like, many flirting with representation.

Her works mine the rich vocabulary of painters from Kandinsky to de Kooning, abex to minimalism, and, in particular, the decisive, yet poetic, brusqueness of Phillip Guston.

Currently a painting fellow at the Roswell Artist in Residence Program, Roswell, New Mexico, Pollard has been the recipient of a CUE Art Foundation Artist-in-Residence, New York, and a Pollock-Krasner Foundation Grant. Her work has been exhibited at various venues nationally including P.S. 122, New York, NY, Aljira Center for Contemporary Art, Newark, NJ, New Mexico State University, and Tyler School of Art and Vox Populi, Philadelphia, PA. This is her first solo exhibition in Los Angeles.
